Protest demonstrators close Dallas freeway

🕐 1 min read

 

DALLAS (AP) — Hundreds of demonstrators roamed the streets of downtown Dallas after an evening City Hall rally, with dozens of them eventually massing in the middle of a busy freeway where they blocked traffic.

The demonstrators strode onto Interstate 35E on the western edge of downtown Dallas about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, where they were surrounded by police patrol cars and blocked traffic.

 

Aerial video showed the demonstration appeared to be peaceful as police coaxed the demonstrators to the shoulder, although there appeared to be an undetermined handful of arrests.

 

There have been no reports of violence.

 

The demonstrators are protesting a Missouri grand jury’s decision not to indict a white suburban St. Louis police officer for the shooting death of an unarmed black man.
