Nadia Prupis, staff writer

Hundreds of protesters gathered in Olympia, Washington on Thursday night to demonstrate against the police shooting of two unarmed black men that took place earlier that day.

Andre Thompson, 24, and Bryson Chaplin, 21, who are step-brothers, both survived being shot in the chest. Thompson was listed as stable in serious critical condition Thursday night and Chaplin was listed as critical. They are both expected to live.
