A Pennsylvania judge on Thursday was revisiting the $1 million bail set for several protesters accused of setting fires and destroying public property after the police shooting of a knife-wielding suspect Sunday in the city of Lancaster.

The seven-figure bail, which was met with outrage by numerous civil rights advocates, has kept at least nine of the 13 suspects behind bars on a slew of charges, including arson, rioting, institutional vandalism and disorderly conduct, jail records show.

Magisterial District Judge Bruce Roth, who was reviewing the decision in a joint bail hearing Thursday morning, has since reduced the amount for at least three of the defendants.

One of them, 21-year-old Taylor Enterline, had her bail slashed to $50,000, local racial justice group SafeHouse Lancaster announced in a Facebook post.

The charged protesters were part of a crowd of more than 100 people who gathered outside the city’s police station late Sunday night to demand justice in the killing of Ricardo Munoz just hours earlier.
