NEW YORK – Hundreds of people gathered in Union Square Park in Manhattan and took to the streets to protest the recent police-related shootings of two black men.

The protesters on Thursday chanted “The people united, never be divided” and “Hands up don’t shoot.” Police scrambled to keep up with the crowd as the group left the park and marched up Fifth Avenue.
