  • A demonstrator injured by a vehicle on the intersection of 5th and I Streets in Eureka has their injury evaluated.
About 200 demonstrators gathered at the Humboldt County Courthouse on Thursday, calling for justice for Breonna Taylor as part of a nationwide protest one day after a grand jury in Louisville, Kentucky, brought no charges against police officers involved in her March 13 fatal shooting while serving a no-knock warrant at emergency medical technician’s home.

One officer was charged with wanton endangerment for shooting into a nearby home.

Demonstrators in Eureka marched down Fourth and Fifth streets, many calling out "Breonna Taylor," "Black Lives Matter" and "say her name" before blocking Fifth Street in front of the courthouse for a time.

At least one demonstrator was reported to be hit and injured by a truck around 7:40 p.m. and an ambulance was responding.
The death of Taylor, who was 26, at the hands of police is among many whose names have been invoked during months of Black Lives Matter protests across the U.S.
