Los Angeles protesters gather outside police headquarters

Hours after authorities in Memphis released the video footage, groups of protesters began to gather outside LAPD headquarters in downtown Los Angeles.

The protest began with a candlelight vigil but escalated as police and protesters engaged in direct confrontation. Officers were seen wearing riot gear and lined up on the streets outside police headquarters, preparing to control the crowd.

Footage appeared to show a smoke bomb was thrown at an LAPD unit late Friday, causing police to disperse, though authorities said they were prepared to act in case more protests continued overnight.
