Just hours after Houston police shot a man multiple times during a traffic stop, hundreds of protestors gathered near the Galleria to speak out against rampant instances of police brutality nationwide.

Carrying signs that read "Hands up, Don't shoot" and "We can't breathe," Houstonians marched near the landmark water wall at Post Oak and Westheimer. Last week, protestors gathered inside and outside the Galleria, prompting a few stores to close their doors.

Nearly two hours into the event, some of the more than 40 Houston Police Department officers on patrol there began making arrests. Details are not yet available.

The Houston event is one of dozens across the country held in recent weeks to protest the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by police in Ferguson, Missouri, and the death of Eric Garner, 43, a New York man who was killed by police while being arrested for allegedly selling illegal cigarettes.
