Black Lives Matter protestors march through downtown Tampa

Posted at 9:51 PM, Jul 11, 2016

The Black Lives Matter movement marched through downtown Tampa Monday evening.

Protestors marched together, supporting Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and other African Americans killed during confrontations with law enforcement.

Tampa police officers redirected traffic as protestors took over city streets.

The group, united in a group, walked toward the interstate. Officers created a wall blocking anyone from walking onto the on and off ramps. Everyone then sat down, chanted and formed a large circle around Tyler and Ashley streets.

The protest lasted around two hours.
