As Erie County's curfew went into effect at 9 p.m., police worked to clear a small group of demonstrators out of Niagara Square.

Authorities ordered the dozen or so protesters to move up Niagara Street, away from the square.

Buffalo police arrested a handful of people who didn't want to leave the area outside Niagara Square just moments after the curfew began.
