NORFOLK, Va. - Wednesday night members of Black Lives Matter 757 marched in solidarity for Breonna Taylor.

Taylor was shot multiple times and killed by police officers in her home on March 13 in Louisville, Kentucky while a no-knock search warrant was served.

Protesters locally and across the world have been calling for charges to be filed against the officers involved in Taylor's shooting death.

The news that none of the Louisville Police Officers involved in her murder were not charged has some people here in Norfolk in disbelief. Others say they aren’t surprised.

Former officer Brett Hankison is facing felony charges for endangering Taylor’s neighbors.

“I just knew that we weren’t going to get what we expected. We have seen it time and time again. We’ve seen it with Sandra Bland we have seen it with India here in Virginia Beach," said protester Angie Day.

The group of over 50 people marched from the Martin Luther King Jr. Park on Church St. to Downtown Norfolk.

Protesters say this is also a message to local police. “More training! Just cause I look like someone don’t mean I am them," one adds.
