CHICAGO — Hundreds of protestors filled the streets in Chicago Tuesday night, showing their support for people in Baltimore.

It began at Chicago police headquarters at 35th and Michigan at 6 p.m. and then the group marched through the South Side.

Hundreds of people joined in as the march continued for nearly five hours.

Protestors spoke out about police violence, oppression of minorities and the death of Rekia Boyd — who was killed by an off-duty officer in 2012.

That officer was acquitted last week.

The march was peaceful; however police did make one arrest for reckless conduct.

The group is planning to gather tonight at the DePaul Law School in the Loop.
