Extra Time: NYC pro-Palestinian protest; teen shot in Nashville dies

MANHATTAN, New York (WABC) — In this edition of Eyewitness News Extra Time, we have the latest on a protest in Midtown calling for a cease-fire in the Israel-Hamas war.

A group of pro-Palestinian protestors marched for hours Thursday night, even forcing their way into the New York Times building at one point.
