Demonstrators protested in three California cities against the acquittal of George Zimmerman and officials say they broke windows and vandalized cars in Oakland.

The Oakland police dispatch office said about 100 people protested there and police were dealing with acts of vandalism. The office had no word of any arrests.

Local media reports said some marchers vandalized a police squad car and police formed a line to block the protesters’ path.

The Oakland demonstration followed a raucous but largely peaceful one in San Francisco, which police say ended by 10 p.m.

City News Service reported that the verdict also sparked protests in Los Angeles, where hundreds of people gathered in a park for what police termed a peaceful vigil.

At one point, a group stopped a passenger train and police worked to persuade them to return to the nearby park.
