REDDING, Calif. – Over a dozen people gathered in Shasta County demanding the sheriff step down.

Protestors showed up to Park Marina Drive Sunday evening, near the Shasta County sheriff’s office.

On one side, demonstrators calling for an investigation into Shasta County Sheriff Eric Magrini, centered around what many feel are questionable social media posts in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

Opposing demonstrators held signs and American flags in support of the sheriff.

At times, the interaction became tense but for the most part, the rally stayed peaceful.
