Philadelphia Police Disperse Crowd of More Than 200 Revelers Monday Evening
Philadelphia police dispersed a large crowd of more than 200 people in the city's Brewerytown neighborhood around 9 pm on Memorial Day Monday, 6ABC reports.
Footage from the TV station's helicopter showed a large crowd in the area of 28th street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue around 10 pm Monday evening. Such a crowd is in violation of the COVID-19 social distancing restrictions.
There was a report of a fight, and officers responding to the scene found a DJ table and two security guards filling a vacant lot in the ara, police tell 6ABC.
The crowd was estimated to be between 200 and 250 people, and many were seen in the television footage without mass on their faces.
The crowd has since dwindled. It was not clear if anyone was arrested or if there were any injuries in the fight.
This is a developing story. We'll have more details if they're made available.
