According to a KMZU listener, Independence Center was bombarded with protesters within the last hour.

Reportedly around 9:15 p.m. shoppers were rushed from the shopping center and  parts of 39th street as well as a part of 291 highway were momentarily shut-down.

The caller also stated she was at the shopping center when protests started and witnessed break-ins occur but was unsure of exactly how many protesters were present.

A highway patrol dispatcher has confirmed reports of protests, but has reported that that crowd has dispersed.

KMZU will bring you more information as we further investigate.
