FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — A downtown march in wake of the update for the Breonna Taylor case took place Wednesday night.
Organizer Minny Jackson says protesters met at McMillen Park starting at 7:30 p.m. and marched downtown to Promenade Park.
"We the people will be marching peacefully in Breonna Taylor's name for we can no longer continue to sit by and be treated as if we are not human," Jackson said in a statement.
Around 75 people made the walk from McMillen Park to Promenade Park, with the event lasting just over three hours.
Organizers say the march was setup is to stand in unity with those in Louisville, Kentucky and voice frustration with the lack of charges from Louisville police officers.
Right before the march was about to begin, several Fort Wayne Police Department vehicles approached the organizer's in the park's parking lot to provide them with ground rules.
An officer spoke with Jackson about where the demonstrators were allowed to walk on, such as sidewalks, and the best way to get to Promenade Park.
The group was not allowed to walk in the streets because they did not have a permit.
