WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Three people have been arrested in Winston-Salem during a protest of the deaths of unarmed black men by police officers.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported (https://bit.ly/1xDT9z9) the arrests occurred during a protest Sunday near a shopping mall.

The suspects were charged with interfering with traffic.

Dozens of protesters chanted and waved signs and briefly block traffic before marching to the mall and going inside quietly with their hands up.

Protest leader Kim Porter said all she did was walk against a red light.

Police said the protest lasted about 90 minutes.
