“Earlier this evening, a group of protesters downtown began setting off fireworks and throwing rocks at the County Jail and the Municipal Court Building. Their actions resulted in several non-security windows being broken at the Jail as well of several car windows being smashed at the Municipal Court Building.
“We thank the Pittsburgh Police for its quick response to the calls to County 9-1-1. At this time, we understand that there are 11 people in custody and that Pittsburgh Police will be making determinations regarding charges against those individuals.
“Contrary to reports made by the group that has been organizing the protests over the last few days, there are no sit-ins or protests going on inside the jail, nor have there been. Tonight’s incident has not impacted operations at all. The facility remains secure and safe for all inmates and employees.”
