Protesters descended on a D.C. police station Tuesday evening, in connection with the Friday night death of a Black man on a moped.

Windows were broken at the Fourth District station, 6001 Georgia Ave. NW, after a call for protest on social media over the death of 20-year-old Karon Hylton of Northwest D.C.

The fatality occurred in D.C.’s Brightwood Park neighborhood after 10 p.m. Friday. Police say Hylton was riding on the sidewalk in the 500 block of Kennedy Street Northwest. Officers reportedly tried to stop him because he was not wearing a helmet.

Hylton, police said, later exited an alley in the 700 block of Kennedy Street and “collided with a passenger vehicle.” He died at a hospital.
