Protesters demonstrate against police brutality, show support for Black Lives Matter

- Protesters demonstrating against police brutality showed their support for the Black Lives Matter movement Thursday with a rally in downtown D.C.

Members of the group Showing Up for Racial Justice gathered outside of the D.C. Office of Police Complaints on I Street at around 8 a.m.

The group expressed their solidarity with Black Lives Matter protesters and showed their support for Sherman Evans, a black man who was shot and killed by D.C. police during an incident earlier this month. Police say that Evans was ordered to drop what was believed to be a weapon - later determined to be a BB gun - when he was killed. The investigation into the incident is still under investigation.

On Wednesday, Black Lives Matter and BYP 100 protesters blocked pedestrian and vehicle traffic during a demonstration near D.C.'s Union Station. That protest ended after 15 hours.
