PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police say four people were arrested during a protest, including three for crimes committed at a previous demonstration.

Several dozen people gathered near Phoenix City Hall Sunday night to protest in the wake of a police shooting of an unarmed black man earlier in the day in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Sgt. Tommy Thompson says officers patrolling the area recognized the driver of a vehicle, 26-year-old Brandon Valentine, as a suspect in an aggravated assault on a police officer at a past demonstration.

They also recognized his passenger, 22-year-old Ryan Tice. Both were taken into custody.
