Hundreds of demonstrators fanned out across Philadelphia on Friday night in a show of outrage over the fatal shootings of black men by police in Louisiana and Minnesota, with marchers howling in the faces of police officers, paralyzing traffic and demanding justice.

On Tuesday, police officers in Baton Rouge shot and killed Alton Sterling, an encounter recorded by a bystander. The following night, Philando Castile was fatally shot by a police officer during a traffic stop in a St. Paul suburb, a grueling incident that was broadcast in real time on Facebook by his girlfriend.
