FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - Several hundred protestors staged a march through downtown on Sunday afternoon. 

The protest started at the Tarrant County Courthouse and went south to Lancaster Avenue and back, then to West 7th Street onto the iconic bridge. 

Marchers held up signs and chanted slogans, including “black lives matter” and “no justice, no peace.”

For the most part, the demonstration was peaceful.

But tensions started rising at the west end of the West 7th Street Bridge, when police formed a barricade preventing marchers from going any further.

There was at least one arrest there.
