Some witnesses estimated around 100 people gathered for the protest in Binghamton at around 7 p.m. September 23 in the area of Court and Washington Streets, which lasted a total of about two and a half hours according to police. 

Protesters blocked a portion of Court Street near the Dr. Martin Luthern King memorial for a few minutes before moving on.

In Kentucky, one former police officer was indicted for wanton endangerment for firing into a neighboring house while two other officers were not charged as a judge ruled witness testimony pointed to self-defense for the police opening fire.

Witnesses said that shots were fired from inside the apartment, reportedly by Taylor's boyfriend.
