Dozens of people were arrested Sunday night in Dallas after the city's 7 p.m. curfew went into effect, police say.
A total of 76 people had been arrested by Sunday night, the Dallas Police Department said in a tweet, with an additional 45 to 60 people in custody awaiting charges.
The arrests came after hundreds marched peacefully through downtown early Sunday, most of them leaving the area before the curfew.
