LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Latest on a grand jury’s decision not to indict police officers on criminal charges directly related to Breonna Taylor’s death: (all times EDT)

More than 100 people have gathered outside a downtown church in Louisville, Kentucky, despite a nighttime curfew.

The demonstrators remained largely peaceful Friday night on the sidewalk surrounding the First Unitarian Church, with some yelling “say her name, Breonna Taylor” and “You can’t stop the revolution.”

The church grounds had offered a brief refuge to demonstrators after a curfew the previous night.

There was no immediate sign of any police officers nearby after a 9 p.m. curfew took effect Friday.

It was the third straight night of protests in Louisville since a grand jury decided Wednesday not to charge any police officers for Taylor’s death. The Black woman was killed in March during a police raid gone wrong.

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE BREONNA TAYLOR CASE:

Protesters have been marching in Louisville, Kentucky, and other cities after a grand jury decided to bring no charges against Louisville police for the killing of Breonna Taylor during a drug raid gone wrong. At a Friday news conference, family attorney Ben Crump called for the release of grand jury transcripts and relatives of Taylor criticized Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron. Also Friday, a not guilty plea was entered in court for Larynzo Johnson, who is accused of shooting and wounding two police officers during protests after the grand jury announcement.
