PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - Protestors have gathered for a second night at the Arizona State Capitol following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to reverse Roe v. Wade.

Workers were out Saturday morning and afternoon putting up fences around major landmark buildings. On Friday night, protestors reportedly vandalized several memorials in the capitol complex area. Arizona Department of Public Safety deployed tear gas amongst the protestors when they tried to force entry into the Senate Building. DPS confirmed on Sunday afternoon that four arrests were made.

Saturday night remained mostly peaceful though many protesters were heard yelling expletives aimed at Governor Ducey and other government officials. There were no reports of any damage from Saturday’s protest.
