SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — From a peaceful march to rocks being thrown at officers, what started as a protest took a quick turn hours later with violent acts in Sioux Falls on May 31, 2020.

People throughout Sioux Falls joined an organized march for George Floyd starting at 5 p.m. in downtown Sioux Falls. KELOLAND reporter Brady Mallory talked to many people who say the people who were downtown were not the ones who ended up at the mall after 9 p.m.

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem said the people who went to the Empire Mall were not protesters; she says they were violent criminals.
