Demonstrators protesting the decision by a grand jury in Breonna Taylor’s case on Thursday clashed with counter-protesters in Louisville, USA Today reported.

On Wednesday a grand jury decided not to indict the three Louisville Metro Police officers on charges related to 26-year-old Taylor’s death in March. One officer was charged on three counts of wanton endangerment for firing shots into nearby apartments. 

Protesters — who had for months called for justice in Taylor’s killing — took to the streets again after the announcement Wednesday. Hundreds were arrested Wednesday evening alone, authorities reported. 

Another two dozen people were arrested early Friday morning for allegedly damaging business and government property. At one point Thursday night the Black Lives Matter protesters clashed with roughly a dozen armed counter-protesters, USA Today reported.
