Marchers take to Center City streets

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- For the second night in a row, demonstrators marched on the streets of Center City Philadelphia.

According to SEPTA Police Chief Thomas J. Nestel, approximately 100 people began walking around 7:00 p.m. Friday at 12th and Filbert.

The crowd moved through Arch Street and JFK Boulevard before arriving at Broad and Walnut just after 7:30 p.m.

They then made their way to the Art Museum.

Nestel described the group as "Peaceful. Philly style."



This came a day after a "Philly is Baltimore" rally lasted more than six hours Thursday.



The event was organized by the Philadelphia Coalition for REAL Justice.

It began at Philadelphia City Hall. Organizers said the purpose was to show solidarity with protestors in Baltimore.

Earlier on Friday, Baltimore's top prosecutor announced charges against six officers in Freddie Gray's death.
