Protesters continued marching south on Peoria, and some businesses are now cleaning up after being vandalized late Sunday night.

Employees at the Quality Thrift store near 51st Street and Peoria are cleaning up Monday morning after some of their windows were broken.

Protesters marched from downtown all the way to Brookside around 11 p.m. Sunday.

Tulsa Police officers were then lined up at 41st Street and Peoria asking people to stop causing damage to store fronts.

As people started getting closer toward the line of officers, police deployed pepper balls and tear gas into the crowds.

Some people made it past the line and continued marching south on Peoria; and, damage was caused to store fronts and a nearby dispensary.

Tulsa Police stated on Facebook that they're thankful for the peaceful protesters that came out, but they're not thankful for the ones who caused damage to businesses.
