Three men who were arrested at a late-night demonstration surrounding recent officer-involved shootings of black men have been released from a Phoenix jail. 
 
Police said Saturday that Andre Hendrix and Devin Brooks, both 24, and 21-year-old Christian Soto are accused of throwing rocks at officers.
 
No police were injured. 
 
Hendrix and Soto were booked Friday on aggravated assault on a police officer and obstructing governmental operations.
 
Brooks was arrested for disorderly conduct -- refusing to disburse.
 
According to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office inmate search system, all three men were released and not in the jail system as of Sunday afternoon although it's not clear exactly when they were released. 
 
Hundreds of people gathered to protest in downtown Phoenix on Friday. The demonstration was relatively peaceful until protesters tried to march onto the I-10 freeway.
