GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Protesters rallied in several areas throughout the city Thursday in response to two officer-involved shootings this week.

Protests began in the afternoon outside the courthouse downtown and outside Grasshopper Stadium after 9 p.m.

At least 50 protesters held signs and chanted "no justice, no peace."

At times, protesters laid down in the street.

Many said watching images of the police shootings of Alton Sterling in Louisiana and Philando Castile in Minnesota caused them to move to action.

"A lot of us are just frustrated," said protester Summer Barber.

"Many people question what is there to do except to protest, what else can we do; so this is just the first step to getting actions taking place," she said.
