CBS News' Carter Evans was about three blocks away from the convention center and says his eyes and nose are burning. He said he saw a lot of flashes and bangs that started to disperse the crowd, but many were wearing masks.
Evans reports that demonstrators were trying to send a message that they won't stand for racism or white supremacy and disagree with much of what Trump stands for.
Steve Futterman of CBS News Radio reports that he hasn't seen any arrests. He heard police announce on a loudspeaker that the crowd was an unlawful assembly.
