As a mob of Donald Trump supporters stormed a joint-session of Congress Wednesday in Washington, D.C., triggering chaos and violence, another group took to the streets of downtown L.A. in solidarity, holding "Stop the Steal" signs.
Several onlookers posted on Twitterthat Angelenos should stay away, saying they spotted members of the Proud Boys, a white supremacist hate group, at the scene. Those reports have not yet been confirmed.
Others captured scenes of violence and fighting between counter protestors and Trump supporters.
