Dozens of protesters were arrested overnight in Minneapolis as they called for police and prison reform.

The protests and arrests, which were seen by a 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS crew, were not related to the fatal shooting of 23-year-old Dolal Bayle Idd by police on Wednesday in south Minneapolis. The protest had been scheduled for several weeks.

The arrests happened in downtown Minneapolis. 

According to officials with the city, 15 people were booked for probable cause riot and 21 people were cited and released.

Police said several dispersal orders were given but those who were arrested refused to vacate the area.
