A Black Lives Matter protest over a 2020 police incident in Rochester, New York, targeted a store that had nothing to do with the case.

Tuesday marked the one-year anniversary of the encounter between Rochester police and Daniel Prude, a 41-year-old black man, who was stopped by police while naked and high. Bodycam footage showed he was placed in a restraint hold by the officers who detained him and became unresponsive shortly afterward. He died one week later in a case the Monroe County Medical Examiner called a homicide, according to WHAM-TV.

Hundreds of protesters gathered at Parcel 5 in Rochester before marching to Wegmans, a grocery chain, where they took over the parking lot, leading the store to close.
