Hundreds of students march in the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince, shouting and waving signs against the National Police.

They're angry over the weekend death of a university student -- allegedly shot by a police officer at a party.

But the protest erupted into clashes as demonstrators threw rocks at police, who responded with tear gas.

The unidentified police officer accused of fatally shooting twenty-four-year-old Damael d'Haiti on Saturday has been taken in for questioning.

The investigation, however, has done little to quell anger.

According to authorities, several students were injured in the clashes.
