Hundreds in Tulsa Peacefully Protest Police Shootings
Hundreds of people gathered in Tulsa Tuesday evening for a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest against recent fatal police shootings.
The crowd met at a cultural center Tuesday evening and proceeded to march about four miles through downtown streets, at times blocking traffic.
Marchers carried signs and chanted slogans such as "Hands up, don't shoot" and "No justice, no peace, no racist police."
At least 200 people were in the crowd.
The protest comes after the recent fatal police shootings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. Organizer Bobby Scott says police violence also happens in Tulsa.
