Police Chief Danielle Outlaw said at least 13 people were arrested and there were six minor injuries. The rally was organized by the right-wing group the Proud Boys. They were met by black-clad anti-fascist protesters.

Outlaw said authorities were able to largely keep the groups separated.

Mayor Ted Wheeler said at an evening news conference that "this was a dynamic event with demonstrators frequently moving from one part of the city to another."
