WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Hundreds of people have gathered in Wichita for a peaceful protest against recent fatal police shootings.

TV station KWCH reports (https://bit.ly/29CEcpc ) a group of about 400 people demonstrated Tuesday evening. The crowd met at a park and walked toward Interstate 135, where state troopers prevented them from accessing the highway.

The group moved on and continued marching for about three hours, ending at a park around 10 p.m. Among their chants was, “Black lives matter. All lives matter.”

No injuries were reported.

The protest comes after the recent fatal police shootings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Philando Castile in Falcon Heights, Minnesota.
