24 arrested at police protests in Anaheim, Calif.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Police in Anaheim, Calif., have restored order after violent protests over weekend police shootings caused injuries and two dozen arrests.

As many as 500 protesters and 250 police were involved in a fourth night of violence Tuesday. Seven hours of confrontations ended around 2 a.m. today.

Sgt. Bob Dunn says an initially peaceful protest evolved into clusters of people who threw rocks at police, lit trash can fires, threw a Molotov cocktail at a police car and smashed windows in businesses.

Police used beanbag rounds and pepper balls.

Dunn says 20 adults and four minors were arrested.

He says a police officer, two members of the media and some protesters were injured, but nobody was hospitalized.
