Demonstrators took down a statue of Confederate Gen. Albert Pike near Metropolitan Police Department headquarters late Friday. News4's Shomari Stone was live at the scene.

D.C. police extinguished the fire and protesters dispersed after a short time. The toppling of the statue happened at the end of a day of peaceful Juneteenth protests and rallies.
