Protesters angry about the death of Ezell Ford and other recent police shootings rushed onto the 110 Freeway at one point Monday night, briefly stopping traffic.

At first, three people holding hands walked into the southbound lanes from an on-ramp at Gage Avenue. Then a group of 30 or so others followed. They linked hands and formed a line blocking traffic.

Tires screeched and traffic began to back up. Protesters chanted and held signs reading, “We R One Rise Unite,” and “A GUN MUZZLE IMPRINT IN EZELL’S BACK?”

At one point, an angry motorist got out of her car and screamed at the protesters to get off the freeway.
