Dozens took the streets in Richmond Wednesday night to protest a Kentucky grand jury’s decision to not charge the police officers involved in shooting death of Breonna Taylor.

More than 100 people gathered at Monroe Park on Virginia on Virginia Commonwealth University’s campus before marching to RPD’s Third Precinct on South Meadow Street.

About 30 minutes later, protesters made their way to police headquarters, where officers say the group remained for more than four hours.
