Thousands Take To The Streets

As the nation deals with the aftermath of two police shootings within 48 hours thousands in Atlanta and other cities took to the streets on Thursday to protest. In Atlanta a large march headed down Peachtree Street to 10th close to Piedmont Park to protest the shooting deaths of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, LA and Philando Castile in Minneapolis, MN. Lericia Harris shot this video of the marchers.

Atlanta Police are also investigating the death of a black man between 25 and 35 years of age who was found hanging from a tree in Piedmont Park Thursday morning. Atlanta police said the death of the unidentified man was a probable suicide.
