Trayvon Martin D.C. Protests: Demonstrators March Through Washington After George Zimmerman Verdict (PHOTOS) (VIDEOS)

When the news broke that George Zimmerman had been acquitted by a Florida court for the killing of teenager Trayvon Martin Saturday, social media wasn't the only place District residents took to voice anger with the final verdict -- peaceful demonstrations through the streets of D.C. sprang up almost immediately.

The protests Saturday night, which began just before midnight -- along U Street and in Columbia Heights -- and into early Sunday morning, led to planned demonstrations and vigils Sunday evening demonstrations at Howard University and Meridian Hill Park, according to DCist.

And the demonstrations aren't over. Al Sharpton, who called the Zimmerman verdict "an atrocity," announced plans for a Washington demonstration on Tuesday at 10 a.m. outside the U.S. Department of Justice at 950 Pennsylvania Ave. NW.

We've pulled together images from the scenes around D.C.:
