Nearly 200 people gathered in downtown Bowling Green Saturday to march from Circus Square Park to the Warren County Justice Center.  

There were signs in memory of Breonna Taylor, who was shot and killed in her home after the Louisville Metro Police Department carried out a no-knock warrant. 

 

Bowling Green protestors also had signs in support of Black Lives Matter and spoke about the importance of voting.
