RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Gov. Roy Cooper came out of the Executive Mansion early Monday evening and marched with a group protesting on Blount Street.
The group was sitting in the roadway and began chanting “march with us.”
Cooper then began to walk south on Blount Street and around the block.
The protest in front of the Executive Mansion marks the third night of demonstrations in Raleigh in the wake of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis a week ago.
The protests turned violent over the weekend – resulting in several arrests and destruction across the city.
