Los Angeles police officers in riot gear arrested at least seven people protesting the George Zimmerman ruling early Monday in front of the city’s CNN building, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Over 100 LAPD officers fired “less-than-lethal” rounds to clear what authorities described as an unlawful assembly of about 80 people, according to the Times. The protesters condemned the acquittal of Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin, carrying signs reading “We are All Trayvon Martin” and chanting “No Justice, No Peace.”

Officials told the Times that the protesters were mostly peaceful, with a few outliers who were more aggressive.
