Police and Protesters Work Together and Both Leave the Area

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville Metro Police started making arrests Thursday night shortly after curfew set in at 9 p.m.

Protesters once again gathered at Jefferson Square Park in downtown Louisville early Thursday evening.

The park has been the epicenter for protesters since the movement began in May. Wednesday night 127 people were arrested in Louisville.  According to Louisville Metro Police, 71 of those arrested were from Louisville, the remaining 56 were from out of state; some from Indiana, but others as far away as Oregon. Police also said of all the arrests, four people were carrying weapons. It’s not clear what kind of weapons.

Officials said the two LMPD officers shot Wednesday, Maj. Aubrey Gregory and Officer Robinson Desroches, are recovering from their injuries. The suspect in the shooting, 26-year-old Larynzo Johnson, is in jail, police said.
