AKRON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – With no reports of damage done during the night, it appears Akron Mayor Dan Horrigan will lift the 9 p.m.-to-6 a.m. downtown curfew as of Wednesday night.
It was put in place late Sunday night when a small group of people within a largely peaceful crowd began breaking windows and setting fires.
The crowd was protesting the police-involved shooting death of Jayland Walker.
50 people were arrested in the early morning hours Monday amidst the violence.
