Several hundred people peacefully marched through downtown Seattle in a Black Lives Matter demonstration Saturday night.

“Hands up! Don’t shoot!” the crowd shouted, marching south down Second Avenue after a rally at Westlake Center.

A heavy police presence on foot and bicycle and by car and armored vehicle was on hand but at a distance, keeping largely to blocks close by.

Marchers said they gathered to show concern for lives lost to police shootings.
