LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Protesters took to the streets in Las Vegas Thursday evening on Day 2 following the Breonna Taylor grand jury decision in Louisville.

The group gathered near the corner of Sahara Avenue and Paradise Road at around 7 p.m. in calling for "Justice for Taylor."

Minister Stretch Sanders was part of the organized event and spoke to those in attendance.


The group marched their way south on Las Vegas Boulevard from Sahara Avenue in what was an overall peaceful pace, according to the 13 Action News crew following the group.

And Las Vegas police did not immediately report any incidents or arrests Thursday evening.

Police reported approximately 150 participants were part of Wednesday's protest with authorities making six arrests.

Taylor was fatally shot by Louisville Metro Police in her apartment on March 13. The incident happened as police obtained a search warrant as part of a narcotics investigation in which the 26-year-old Taylor was not a suspect.

Earlier this month, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, reached a $12 million wrongful death settlement with Taylor's family.

At the announcement of the settlement, Tamika Taylor, Breonna's mother, said "It's time to move forward with the criminal charges."

Prior to the protests in Las Vegas and other parts of the country, a grand jury declined to indict any of the three officers involved in the shooting, but instead charged one of them, Brett Hankison, with three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment for firing into the apartments of Taylor's neighbors.
