Hundreds of people attended a march Sunday in Bridgeport to show solidarity with protesters in Ferguson, Missouri.
The protesters said they are fed up with what they say has been a lack of justice in the police shooting death of unarmed teen Michael Brown.
The marchers called for more racial balance in the Bridgeport Police Department. In response, city officials said that the Bridgeport Police Department actually has the most racially diverse police force in the entire state.
The march began at the East End Baptist Tabernacle. The marchers carried their message through the streets of Bridgeport with a police escort, and the march ended at the Margaret E. Morton Government Center.
City officials said they welcome an ongoing dialogue with the organizers of Sunday's march.
