KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As community leaders continue to take stock of Wednesday’s news in the Breonna Taylor investigation, protesters returned Thursday night intodowntown Kansas City, Missouri.

A group of between 50 to 70 protesters peacefully gathered by 7:15 p.m. on the south steps of City Hall.

Protesters angered by a Kentucky grand jury's decision not to bring charges against the Louisville police officers who shot and killed Taylor while serving a warrant in March spoke and chanted for second-straight night about a legal system they say is in need of reform.

Demonstrators listened to several speakers, including attorney and community activist Stacy Shaw, before dispersing after 8 p.m.

No arrests were made Thursday, unlike Wednesday night when 5 people were arrested for trespassing at KCPD Headquarters.

Protesters plan to protest again at 6 p.m. on Friday at KCPD Headquarters.
