CNN placed protective fencing around its headquarters in Atlanta on Friday amid ongoing Black Lives Matter demonstrations.

Protests continued outside the Georgia state capitol over the death of Rayshard Brooks, who was fatally shot in a Wendy's parking lot in Atlanta by a police officer after trying to escape with the officer's taser.

Photos posted on Twitter by Townhall reporter Julio Rosas show the CNN building surrounded by a newly erected barrier following damage from an earlier protest that quickly turned into a riot.

? In late May, the building was also ambushed by rioters shortly after the death of George Floyd.
