The Game and Snoop Dogg make their way into LAPD headquarters on July 8, 2016, after they led a peaceful demonstration outside a Los Angeles Police Department recruit graduation ceremony in what they called an effort to promote unity in the aftermath of the deadly shootings of police officers in Dallas.

A procession of people marched to the Los Angeles Police Department's graduation ceremony on Friday (July 8) following the sniper shootings in Dallas, Texas during an otherwise peaceful police brutality protest that left five officers dead and six injured. The protest was in response to the killing of two black men -- Alton Sterling, 37, in Baton Rouge, La. and Philando Castile, 32, in Falcon Heights, Minn.

West Coast rappers Snoop Dogg and The Game were spotted at the LAPD commencement as well. "Finna get some dialogue with the LAPD, the new recruits, the graduating class of 2016," he said in an Instagram clip. "This is how you make moves -- this is how you make it happen." Game also shared a clip of the procession with a caption that read: "H.U.N.T the movement!!! #HATEUSNOTTODAY #HUNTUSNOTTODAY." Both rappers also tell the camera, "We come in peace."

The LAPD also tweeted a statement on Thursday night (July 7) in response the Dallas Police Department shootings. "While we continue to monitor the evolving situation in Dallas, we offer our heartfelt condolences as a department to the families of the officers killed in tonight's attack in Downtown Dallas," it read. The department added, "In times of great peril and fear, it is important for us a city to remain united as one community."
