DURHAM, N.C. –Anti-police protesters claimed to throw off Durham police using Twitter as they rallied at the Streets of Southpoint mall Tuesday night.
A small group of protesters gathered at the American Tobacco Campus around 7 p.m. but then left the area after tweeting they would rally at North Gate Mall.
At 7:30 p.m., Twitter user John Brier (@JohnBrier) wrote in response to a tweet from @NC4Ferguson, “change of plans going to Northgate Mall instead. #BlackLivesMatter #Durham.”
Durham police were seen at Northgate Mall around 8 p.m. and at the Streets at Southpoint before 9 p.m.
Shortly after 8 p.m., demonstrators rallied and chanted inside Nordstrom Rack and Old Navy on Fayetteville Road.
At 8:45 p.m., Twitter user @ExodusReign tweeted, “How we dodged the police tonight was brilliant #ShutItDown #durham.”
Just after 9 p.m., Brier posted a video of protesters chanting inside the Old Navy at Southpoint.
Durham police said no one was arrested during Tuesday’s protests and that only a “brief disturbance” was reported.
