HeadlineAug 26, 2020

In Pennsylvania, dozens of Black Lives Matter protesters on a march from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Washington, D.C., were shot at by a white resident Monday night as they walked through a residential neighborhood in Bedford County east of Pittsburgh. One protester was injured by the gunfire and treated at a local hospital.

In Louisville, Kentucky, police arrested 68 people Tuesday as they protested nonviolently to demand the arrest of the officers who killed Breonna Taylor, the 26-year-old EMT who was killed by police in her own home in March.
