A spokesman says no officers fired their service weapons and that there were “some arrests.”

The Courier Journal reports around 500 to 600 demonstrators marched through the Kentucky city’s downtown Thursday night.

Thursday’s demonstration came as protesters across the country have demonstrated against the death of a black man, George Floyd, in Minneapolis police custody.
