MISSOULA — Rumors have been circulating on social media that outside groups are coming to Missoula as a result of the ongoing local protests over the death of George Floyd.

The Missoula Police Department noted in a Wednesday morning social media post that “despite several rumors of violent protest groups coming to Missoula, we have not been able to confirm any such information.”

The protests and rallies started on Friday in front of the Missoula County Courthouse following the lethal arrest of Floyd by police in Minneapolis.
