Protesters showing solidarity for counterparts in Ferguson, Mo. swarmed in Los Angeles for the third night in a row.

The protesters blocked traffic by lying down in the streets north of downtown, blocking traffic at the intersection of Cesar Chavez and Alameda, ABC 7 reports. Roughly 50 protesters were placed under arrested according to ABC 7 and the rest were ordered to disperse.

Some protesters were chanting "Kill killer cops," according to The Los Angeles Times' Ryan Parker. He tweeted that a bus was taking the arrested protesters away. 

Pictures from the protests surfaced on social media. 

The protests are in response to a Missouri Grand Jury's decision Monday not to indict Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who shot and killed unarmed teenager Michael Brown in August. In addition to L.A. and Ferguson, protests have taken place in cities such as Oakland, Chicago and New York.  Protests also occurred in L.A. on Monday and Tuesday
