CLEVELAND — Protesters in downtown Cleveland blocked off Public Square for more than an hour and are now making their way onto the Shoreway, stopping traffic.
At one point protesters lay in the street in Public Square before making their way north on Ontario Street, East on Lakeside Avenue and north on East Ninth Street and onto the Shoreway.
Amid stopped rush hour traffic, they chanted “What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!” and “Black lives matter!”
While still in Public Square, a man was detained by police officers and placed in the back of a cruiser.
Protesters were demonstrating against both the lack of an indictment of a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., who shot and killed an unarmed teenager and the killing this past weekend of a 12-year-old Cleveland boy by police.
