PHOENIX (AP) - An activist who led a protest march through downtown Phoenix that resulted in a brief standoff with police last week is planning another demonstration.

The Rev. Jarrett Maupin says a sit-in is planned for Friday as part of a Black Lives Matter demonstration. He says the protest would shut down the intersection of 24th Street and Camelback Road.

Maupin also has a list of 12 proposed reforms for the Phoenix Police Department. They include the immediate deployment of body cameras for all officers, increased walking patrols, diversity training, and a recommendation that investigations of police misconduct be done by an outside agency.

Last Friday night, three men were arrested for throwing rocks at officers at a Phoenix demonstration over the recent shootings of black men by police around the country.
