Los Angeles police Monday evening cordoned off streets near City Hall as dozens of protesters marched against police brutality. 

The protesters were gathering in front of the Los Angeles Police Department headquarters on 1st Street, between Main and Spring streets. Spring Street near City Hall and 1st Street were blocked off.

"Hey, hey, ho, ho, police brutality's got to go!" they shouted as they walked past the LAPD headquarters. A truck and marchers with megaphones led the procession. They were followed by squad cars and officers on bikes.

The protest was peaceful, police said, and no arrests were reported.
