The Latest on protests in Baton Rouge arising from Tuesday's video-recorded shooting death of Alton Sterling (all times local):

4:15 p.m.

Hundreds of people are gathered at a Baton Rouge convenience store for another day of protest at the site where a black man, Alton Sterling, died at the hands of two white police officers.

Some wore T-shirts that read, "I can't keep calm I have a black son" or "Black Lives Matter."

Lael Montgomery from Baton Rouge said the black community is demanding an end to police brutality. But Montgomery said he also doesn't want anyone to get hurt in the protests. He said he knows police are on edge after five officers died in a sniper attack in Dallas Thursday.

Some protesters headed for more demonstrations at the Baton Rouge Police Department, where overnight protests led to 30 arrests. Others waited for a scheduled evening march starting at City Hall.



Protests were set to resume in Baton Rouge on Saturday, hours after demonstrations over a video-recorded police shooting produced tense moments resulting in 30 arrests.

Baton Rouge police have issued a statement saying they are investigating a newspaper website's video that appears to show an officer with his weapon temporarily drawn at one point early Saturday morning as angry protesters confronted police.

More demonstrations were expected Saturday afternoon.

Demonstrations in Baton Rouge following Tuesday's shooting of Alton Sterling had been largely peaceful, but there were some tense moments Friday night and early Saturday.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office released a list of 30 people arrested in the demonstrations — most for obstructing a highway, but three for inciting to riot.
