    Background:

    Times reporter Ruben Vives is reporting live in South Los Angeles, where protesters took to the streets around Crenshaw and Martin Luther King Jr. boulevards to oppose the not-guilty verdict for George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who killed Trayvon Martin. Times reporters Robert Lopez and Andrew Blankstein are monitoring LAPD actions.


    Earlier, dozens of protesters gathered in Leimert Park for a vigil in support of Martin. Following the vigil, marchers moved along Crenshaw Boulevard chanting "No justice, No Peace."

    Police estimated that 80 to 150 people began engaging in lawless activity along Crenshaw as they jumped on top of vehicles and appeared to assault bystanders.

    Some protesters stormed a Wal-Mart as guards scrambled to close security gates. A short while later, Los Angeles Police Department officers wearing helmets and carrying batons swarmed the store as others marched through the parking lot.


    The LAPD declared a tactical alert about 9 p.m., which means that off-duty officers can be held on duty when their shifts end and may respond only to high-priority calls.

    The LAPD arrested at least one person but vowed to take more into custody if the lawless actions continued.

    Unlawful Assembly Declared For Crenshaw Demonstrations Following Zimmerman Verdict

    CRENSHAW DISTRICT (CBSLA.com) Los Angeles police issued a citywide tactical alert Monday evening as residents took to the streets for a third day in Los Angeles to protest the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.

    At 9:52p.m., Lt. Andy Neiman told KCAL9 that the LAPD had declared an unlawful assembly. Protesters will be given a designated amount of time to disperse or be subject to arrest.

    A group of protestors traveled on Crenshaw Blvd. towards the Inglewood area around 8 p.m. Monday evening.

    At one point, demonstrators could be seen running, biking, or skateboarding in the middle of the streets. Some climbed on top of vehicles. Footage also shows protesters kicking in windows, knocking over trash cans and attempting to pull down an iron fence outside of a property.

    Later, protestors were seen setting off fireworks at the center of Crenshaw Blvd. as they moved northbound towards Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

    Fire trucks were seen traveling to a gas station at the corner of Slauson Ave. and Crenshaw Blvd. after an individual appeared to have been assaulted by members of the group.

    Lt. Neiman told KCAL9 that it was important to distinguish this particular crowd from an organized vigil in Leimert Park during the day. Organizers of that event asked protestors to stay put in the park and not to disrupt traffic.

    Mayor Eric Garcetti took to Twitter to commend the protesters at the Leimert Park vigil, calling on those on Crenshaw Blvd. to follow that example.

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

    Last night this group also beat up a pair of KCAL9 reporters. One of them ended up in the hospital with a concussion.
