From additional protests over the death of George Floyd to the petition calling for the Santa Monica police chief's removal, these are the major headlines in Southern California amid continued civil unrest.

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Some municipalities in Southern California issued curfews Thursday as the region continues to see protests over the death of George Floyd. In some cases, there have been reports of looting near the otherwise-peaceful demonstrations.

Many protests held Wednesday were peaceful as thousands flocked to downtown Los Angeles, West Hollywood and Newport Beach. However, some arrests were made in areas like downtown Los Angeles after dozens of protesters violated the countywide curfew.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said Wednesday night that barring a setback, the citywide curfew would be discontinued.

In addition, the city of Beverly Hills canceled the curfew that had been scheduled to take effect at 6 p.m.

The following are details issued by each city for June 4.

Santa Clarita

Santa Clarita issued a curfew between 6 p.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. Friday.

The city council issued the curfew in response to a rumored protest scheduled for Thursday.

According to the city's website, the move came Wednesday as the Santa Clarita City Council adopted a resolution declaring a local emergency amid civil unrest.
