Hundreds began to march the streets of El Cajon Friday night, continuing their protests against the police department.

"There’s been a lot of negative energy out there that we really don’t want to happen tonight," said Sarah Coleman, a witness of the shooting. "We’re happy that (the video) has came out, there’s just more justification needed."

Protesters collected donations, passed out T-shirts and "Black Lives Matter" bracelets.

Many of which watching the video, released by the state earlier that day, on their phones near a growing set of flowers and candles.

"There was no reason for it to happen," said Coleman. "I feel there were other precautions or measures that should have happened."

Coleman, who returned to the scene, expects the rally and protests to continue.

One protester told FOX 5 he plans on starting a city-wide petition requiring more police training, harsher punishments for officers of similar crimes, and increased community involvement.
