MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - Hundreds of people marched across the Ravenel Bridge for a planned protest Sunday afternoon.
It was the ninth consecutive day of protest in the Charleston area calling for justice following the death of George Floyd.
Members of the Mount Pleasant Police Department including Chief Carl Ritchie joined in the march up the bridge.
“With the police department with us it sends a message,” one protester said. “It sends a message that we’re Charleston, we’re united, and we stand as one.”
The march started around 3:30 p.m. and ended around 5:30 p.m.
Police had earlier closed the pedestrian walkway and the far right northbound lane for the march.
