Law enforcement deployed tear gas on a group of angry abortion rights protesters who gathered outside of the Arizona Senate building following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade on June 24.

Video footage of the incident captured by Republican state Sen. Michelle Ugenti-Rita showed protesters holding signs and shouting outside of the state capitol. Some demonstrators could be seen banging on the glass doors of the government building. Lawmakers were reportedly working on legislature inside the capitol when the protest erupted.
