LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Protesters in downtown Lexington took to the street for the second straight night Thursday in response to the results of the Breonna Taylor investigation.

Lexington police at the scene told LEX 18 that four protesters were arrested downtown for disorderly conduct. Otherwise, it was another night of peaceful demonstrations in the city.

Before the march, protesters painted banners in Taylor's honor to carry with them during the demonstration.

Speakers also gathered on UK's campus where on woman spoke about micro-aggressions she has experienced during her time as a student.

Protesters have listed several changes they would like to see within the Lexington Police Department including a police civilian review board.
