(EDGE) Orlando police handcuffed a man holding an anti-gay sign who was protesting outside the Pulse gay club on the one-year anniversary of the shooting, Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV reports.

Greg Fox, a reporter for the Orlando news station WESH 2, tweeted a photo of the arrest, which shows people cheering "love conquers hate" as officers handcuff the unidentified man.

WFTV's Michael Lopardi also tweeted a photo and a video of the incident.

WFTV reports the man handcuffed was part of a group of three protesters with anti-gay signs. The sign the man was carrying read: "Warning: All homos will burn like faggots in hell."

Police have yet to reveal why they handcuffed the man.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said, "We are not here to relive the horror of that day," according to New Now Next.

Thousands of people gathered in Orlando Monday to remember the Pulse gay club shooting, the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, which claimed the lives of 49 people.
