Dozens of protesters hit the Center City streets on Friday to show their disapproval of Donald Trump being sworn in as the 45th President of The United States. Many students gathered at Temple to protest the election as well. Many believe that the protesters are just out to be disruptive and cause trouble, but many say it's not to be disruptive but about sending a message to Washington. The protesters, however, were peaceful in their march throughout the city, unlike many of the violent protests that took place today in Washington, D.C.

Philadelphia Police and SWAT team members responded to a barricade situation in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia. A shelter was set up near Webster Elementary as a precaution, it has since been lifted. The suspect, who was believed to be armed, barricaded himself inside of a home on the 3600 block of Frankford Avenue. The man is a suspect in connection with a triple shooting. Police entered the house at 11:45 a.m., and found no one inside. The suspect is still at large, and police are still searching for him.

There will be many different road closures in effect on Saturday for the Women's March in Philadelphia. The march will take place on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and Eakins Oval. The City of Philadelphia stated that to ensure the safety of participants and the public many road closures and parking restrictions will be in effect. There is an anticipated 20,000 members participating in the march on Saturday. The city warns that there are many delays to be expected, and motorists are advised to avoid the area by using alternate routes, as well as allowing extra driving time to get to your destination. The full list of closures below:
