A peaceful demonstration took place in Astoria Tuesday as protesters lamented the killing of George Floyd.

Hundreds of people gathered at the intersection of Steinway Street and 30th Avenue at around 1 p.m. to protest Floyd’s death that occurred at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer more than a week earlier.

The protest went off without incident, much like a similar demonstration at Astoria Park Monday evening.
