PITTSBURGH (AP) - Dozens of students from Pittsburgh's Creative and Performing Arts High School are protesting the alleged police beating of a classmate.

Nearly 100 students marched Tuesday from the school to City Hall. They want a thorough investigation into the Jan. 12 confrontation.

Eighteen-year-old viola player Jordan Miles alleges undercover police beat him when he was walking near his mother's house. Pictures taken by his mother show his face covered with bruises and his right eye swollen shut.

Terez Miles says the three white officers targeted her son because he is black.

Police say that Miles appeared to be armed but that a bulky
object in his pocket turned out to be a soda bottle. The officers
have been reassigned and put in uniform while the city
investigates.
