Tension between police and protesters in Anaheim remains high after another day of demonstrations in connection with a string of fatal police shootings.

About nine people were arrested Sunday afternoon after about 250 demonstrators gathered in front of police headquarters to protest the officer-involved shootings, according to KTLA. A breakdown of arrests was not immediately available, officials said.

Demonstrators marched down Harbor Boulevard and Ball Road, briefly blocking traffic during a tense moment between protesters and police.

Initially trailed by a handful of officers on horseback and in patrol cars as they marched down Ball Road, the crowd was later corralled by officers who tried to keep protesters on the sidewalk. The march came to a standstill at Lemon Street, where more than 100 officers from various law enforcement agencies — including police from Santa Ana, Buena Park and Dana Point — blocked Ball Road from traffic and the remaining 50 or so protesters.
