ATLANTA (AP) — Demonstrators gathered again in downtown Atlanta and at universities around the metro area to protest a New York City grand jury's decision not to indict a white police officer in the death of an unarmed black man.

A group of about 100 protesters gathered near the Five Points MARTA train station to protest the grand jury's decision not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo, who was accused of using a chokehold to subdue Eric Garner on Staten Island July 17.

Atlanta Police say no arrests, injuries or damage have been reported after multiple demonstrations on Wednesday and Thursday.

At Emory University, more than 300 people participated in a "die-in" with demonstrators lying on the ground. Schools where protests occurred included Agnes Scott College, Kennesaw State University and the Georgia Institute of Technology.
