Gunfire and rock throwing were needed to disperse a protest of an anti-Lavalas demonstration, against the Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's government. The riot had sent several supporters of two opposition parties to the hospital. The incident was started when the Lavalas supporters, most of whom were armed with guns, threw stones at the Haitian Democratic Party (PADMEH, opposition and anti-Lavalas) demonstrators who were getting ready to hold a peaceful march to protest against the Lavalas regime. PADMEH demonstrators had also retaliated in kind. PADMEH leader had accused the Mayor for a planned attack on the demonstrators.
