Protesters rallying against police violence block both directions of Interstate 80 in Berkeley, Calif., on Monday, Dec. 8, 2014.

BERKELEY, Calif. — More than 1,000 protesters marched for hours on city streets and shut down Interstate 80 in third night of demonstrations Monday over police killings in Missouri and New York.

They confronted a line of police officers in riot gear outside police headquarters before heading to a BART train station, prompting authorities to close it. Protesters then headed west on University Avenue, a four-lane divided street to shut down Interstate 80 in both directions.
