The Vallejo Times-Herald reports that Vallejo police and Solano County Sheriff's deputies had to step in after protesters took over a city council meeting Tuesday night.

Close to 50 protesters arrived inside the City Council Chambers about a half hour after the 6 p.m. meeting started. They took over the sound system once council members retreated to a back room.

The demonstrators were there to protest 10 officer-involved shootings in the city last year.

Police and sheriff's deputies were able to get the protesters to take their demonstration outside.
