Hundreds Protest Police Killings In Chicago

In the wake of the police shootings of African-American men in Louisiana and Minnesota, hundreds are protesting those incidents and ones here in Chicago. 

Demonstrators began with a quiet sit in at Millennium Park. They marched west to Federal Plaza to join “Black Lives Matter” protesters and the group which had close to a thousand marchers made their way through downtown Chicago during rush hour traffic stopped traffic for blocks. It was a peaceful march. Police say no arrests were made. WBEZ's Yolanda Perdomo was there.
