TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - About 45 people have marched through part of downtown Topeka to protest police violence.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1w9TW4i ) reports that the march began and ended Saturday just south of the Kansas Statehouse. Marchers chanted “No justice, no peace, no racist police.” Almost all carried signs, with some bearing the names of African-Americans killed by police officers.

Occasionally, passing motorists honked their horns in a show of support for the marchers.

The event was Topeka’s second tied to the police-related killings of Eric Garner, in Staten Island, New York, and Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri. At least 80 people attended a Dec. 5 vigil at Washburn University’s Kuehne bell tower.
