Richmond, VA _  Richmond Police say they made six arrests overnight during protests at the Robert E. Lee Monument after demonstrators began pelting officers with various objects, including paintballs.  One officer was taken to the hospital with injuries.



Virginia State Police reported body cam footage that showed someone from within the group of protesters launching fireworks, which they say hit someone in the median, but no word on whether, or how badly that person may have been injured.
