Several protesters left the bridge Saturday evening and began marching down Peachtree Street in Midtown. The group stopped a couple times to block intersections and chant.

Protesters stopped at popular locations like the Fox Theatre, the Hard Rock Cafe and Underground Atlanta.

The Channel 2 Action News team witnessed multiple protesters being arrested by police around 12:45 p.m.

The Atlanta Police Department confirms 11 people were arrested -- 10 charged with pedestrian in roadway and one charged with disorderly conduct.

These events come after recent frustration over the police-involved shootings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Philando Castile in St. Paul, Minnesota.The aftermath of both shootings were captured on cellphone video.

A sniper opened fire on police officers in Dallas on Thursday as a peaceful protest against police violence came to an end.
