About 2,000 protesters marched in Center City Philadelphia on Saturday morning in support of New York police officer Peter Liang, who was convicted by a New York jury on Feb. 11 of manslaughter in the 2014 shooting death of an unarmed man, Akai Gurley, 28, in a darkened Brooklyn public-housing stairwell.

The rally, which drew many Chinese Americans and during which protesters shouted "Justice for all," was part of a nationwide show of support for Liang. Organizers said rallies took place in more than 30 cities in the U.S. Saturday.
