More than 100 people marched in downtown Las Vegas for a Black Lives Matter rally Saturday evening.

Two police shootings -- less than 24 hours apart two weeks ago -- have sparked nationwide demonstrations.

"We hope that you hear that we are tired of being shot. We are tired of being stabbed. We are tired of being choked to death," said protester Angel Cash. "We are tired of begging for help.  We are asking for equality and we want it now."

Police were out monitoring the rally but it remained peaceful.
