Police are investigating after a man shouted “white power” and threw up a white supremacist hand signal at racial justice advocates protesting at a 24 Hour Fitness in Hollywood on Thursday.

The man was wearing a T-shirt with Los Angeles Police Department logos, but the agency said it does not appear that he is a member of their force.

Black Lives Matter activists were at the gym on Sunset Boulevard to protest how it handled a man who was in a restricted area last year. Staff called LAPD to report that he was trespassing, and responding officers shot and killed 30-year-old Albert Ramon Dorsey, who they said was not complying with orders.

BLM now says the gym should have no space for white supremacists.
