Hundreds gathered in Inglewood on Sunday evening for a Black Lives Matter protest that briefly blocked the 405 freeway.

According to KTLA, the march began around 7 p.m. and eventually found its way to the 405 freeway near West Manchester Avenue. Around 10:30 p.m., protestors made it onto the freeway, briefly stopping traffic.

The march comes after police shot and killed Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Philando Castile outside St. Paul, Minnesota last week.

However, law enforcement officials were eventually able to safely get the crowd off the freeway:

A few hundred protestors made their way back to the intersection of West Manchester Avenue and La Cienega Boulevard, where they eventually formed a peace sign.
