New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is giving an update Sunday on the coronavirus outbreak and after another night of nationwide protests, including throughout New York City. At an earlier press conference on Sunday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said there will be investigations into some police incidents at the protests, although he said he wanted to “commend the restraint we saw overall by the NYPD.”

De Blasio said Sunday New York’s protests had been hijacked by outside agitators.

Video circulated on social media Saturday night showing an NYPD vehicle driving into protesters in Brooklyn.   

A law enforcement source told CBS News that the vehicles in the video were “trapped” and that the crowd was throwing bricks and rocks, and that there was a bag on fire sitting on top of one of the vehicles. The source said the officers did not “ram” the protesters, but that they were “trying to go forward and escape.”
