Hundreds of demonstrators — some of them heavily armed — crowded into Michigan's state capitol Thursday afternoon to protest against Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's shelter-at-home order.

The demonstration began outside the capitol early in the day in heavy rain, but later in the afternoon, police allowed several hundred protestors — many not wearing masks — inside the building itself.

Protestors stood in the gallery while others attempted to gain access to the House floor, cramming themselves into the entryway chanting "Let us in!" They were held at bay by the chamber's Sergeant-at-Arms.
