SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco police have pegged at 43 the official tally of protesters arrested during a march condemning the weekend police shooting of a Washington parolee.
Police say two protesters were arrested on suspicion of assault, including one demonstrator suspected of trying to take a television news cameraman's camera.
Officer Albie Esparza says the others were arrested for failing to obey a police order to disperse after officers declared Tuesday's gathering an unlawful assembly.
Protesters disrupted rush-hour traffic and dropped smoke bombs during the evening march. Police say one threw a hammer at officers, but no one was injured.
Esparza says most of those arrested did not live in San Francisco.
Investigators say 19-year-old Kenneth Harding shot at police during a chase Saturday before officers returned fire.
