SYCAMORE - For the fifth straight day, demonstrators have gathered for Black Lives Matter protests spurred by the death of George Floyd.

On Wednesday, protests moved into Sycamore for the first time, as hundreds gathered in front of the DeKalb County Courthouse.

Tiana McAllister, 18, of Kirkland, has organized daily protests around the county, and on Wednesday began the demonstration with a speech. The group then began a march around downtown Sycamore.

Sycamore Mayor Curt Lang, DeKalb County Sheriff Roger Scott, DeKalb County State's Attorney Rick Amato and others were in attendance.

The protests locally and across the country were spurred by the death of George Floyd, a black man who died after ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was seen in a video kneeling on Floyd’s neck for nine minutes prior to his death.

The Daily Chronicle will continue to provide live coverage of this event throughout the evening.
