Dozens gathered Saturday for a protest in the streets of Durham for people who have died in police custody or while behind bars.

They waved banners and held signs outside the Durham County Detention Center.

At least three people have died at the jail, including Matthew McCain and Dennis McMurray. Protesters said both men passed away due to medical neglect while locked up.

The Inside-Outside Alliance is demanding an independent investigation.
