A protest planned for Tuesday evening in East Redding has been postponed indefinitely. A local group called “Shasta County Beloved Community” had been partnering with the Redding Police Department to lead a peaceful demonstration prompted by the death of a black man at the hands of a Minneapolis Police Officer. One reason for the postponement is that a number of Shasta County law enforcement agencies have been diverted to an officer involved shooting in Cottonwood. Iit’s not known how many people will show up anyway, but some counter-protesters have gathered to protect area retailers from vandalism. A new date and location for the demonstration has not yet been announced.
