Saturday marks the 10th day of events and protests in the Las Vegas following the death of a Minnesota man named George Floyd while being detained by police.

10:00 P.M.
There were about two dozen protesters when the march began, but when the group passed the Bellagio, that group had doubled in size.

The organizer told 13 Action News that she hopes the protest will be another demonstration for change.

“Take out the color, and see what it really is and that’s the people in power versus the community, and that’s what we need to change," says Zyera Dorsey.

8:15 P.M.
A few dozen protesters are now walking along the Las Vegas Strip. At this time, there are no reports of anything other than a peaceful protest.
