Hundreds of protestors peacefully gathered in Inglewood during a Black Lives Rally there Sunday.

The rally began at 7 p.m. and continued through 11 p.m.

Videos and photos on social media showed hundreds of people spilling out on the streets in the area.

Hundreds of protestors gathered on Manchester Boulevard near the iconic Randy’s Donuts sign.

No arrests or major issues were reported as of 11:30 p.m.

A portion of the 405 Freeway was slowed to a near halt for a time Sunday night, but the highway was eventually cleared.

Maddox Sullivan said he was still angry about recent police shootings, but was to see so many people gathered Sunday night.

“We came out here in numbers,” Sullivan said.

“I’ve never seen so many black people together with no drama, no issues. This was beautiful.”

Another protestor, Chanti Nealon shared the sentiment.

“I’ve been here since it started and it’s been nothing but love,” she said.

“It brought tears to my eyes to see (so) much love from people of all walks of life.”

The rally is one of many going on nationwide after the killing of two black men last week sparked several days of protests. At least 309 people have been arrested over the weekend.

A gunman opened fire during a rally in Dallas apparently in response to the  deaths of Philando Castile in Minnesota and Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge.

Micah Xavier Johnson, 25, an African-American Army Reserve veteran, killed five officers during the ambush and was eventually killed by a police robot bomb.
