LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A group of roughly 250 demonstrators has taken to the streets in downtown Lexington to protest the results of Wednesday's grand jury report in the Breonna Taylor case.

April Taylor, one of the protest organizers, emphasized that tonight's protest should be peaceful and nonviolent.

Taylor also said she hopes to see "Breonna's Law" implemented in Lexington. The law was created to ban no-knock in the wake of Breonna Taylor's death.
