The detours come as a peaceful march against police brutality was planned to begin at 6:30 p.m. Friday at Marriott's AC Hotel on Market Street, according to a news release from Colors Newspaper. The march will end at the Hall of Justice at 6th and Jefferson streets, where local religious and community leaders will call for "an end to the violent protest and rioting, and redirecting our energy to a community meeting this Sunday on the 31st," the release says.

Another gathering is schedule for 8:30 p.m. outside the Muhammad Ali Center. 

A large crowd of nearly 1,000 protesters gathered around the Hall of Justice and Metro Hall on Thursday night to demand justice for 26-year-old Breonna Taylor, who was shot and killed by Louisville Metro Police officers during a March 13 raid on her apartment.

In the early stages of Thursday's protest, attendees stood in the middle of the road blocking some TARC buses. Shots were fired in the crowd, hitting seven people, around 11:30 p.m., according to the Louisville Metro Police Department, which said no officer fired their weapons during the protest.
