MINNEAPOLIS — Hundreds of marchers blocked light rail tracks Tuesday afternoon in downtown Minneapolis, CBS Minnesota reports, following a rally protesting the decision not to charge the officers who shot and killed Thurman Blevins. The 31-year-old black man was shot and killed last month by officers Justin Schmidt and Ryan Kelly after the two responded to a 911 call about a man firing a gun into the air.

Organizers told CBS Minnesotra that the march on the tracks was intended to block trains headed toward Target Field for the Twins game against the Cleveland Indians. Metro Transit said commuters should expect delays for Blue and Green line trains, as well as for buses.
