Monday evening demonstrators marched through East Sacramento to protest the district attorney's decision not to bring charges against the Sacramento police officers who shot and killed Stephon Clark last march.

While the march began quietly, moving from a Trader Joe's on Folsom Boulevard through the "Fab 40s" neighborhood and back, in the end police arrested 84 people for failure to disperse after receiving calls of vandalism from a property owner. Activists say police prevented them from leaving after ordering them to disperse.

Take a look at the images from the night, which saw police arrest nearly 80 people on the 51st Street bridge over Highway 50.
