Traffic moving again as police end Madison shooting protest

MADISON - Traffic is moving again on one of Madison's main thoroughfares after high school students blocked the street to protest the death of an unarmed biracial man at the hands of a white police officer last month.

Police on Tuesday evening ordered an end to the daylong protest that saw dozens of students from East and West High Schools blocking East Washington Avenue.

Police declared the gathering an unlawful assembly and ordered protesters to leave the street. At least one person was arrested.
