At approximately 2:30 pm, about 200 Pro-Trump supporters gathered in front of Omaha City Hall.  There was a small Anti-Trump protest as well.  It was a tense but peaceful situation with what looked like 20 to 30 police officers on bicycles and horses.  

As the rallies were taking place roughly 20 masked Anti-Trump supporters approached the rally on Farnam Street. Police pushed their group back behind City Hall.   Pepper spray balls were deployed and several arrests were made.  A woman had a severe reaction to the pepper balls and was taken away for treatment by EMS.
