CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – People began loudly protesting in downtown Canton shortly after Prosecutor Stone announced the grand jury findings.

The Repository says they carried signs and shouted “no justice no peace” to passersby.

About 40 protesters initially appeared outside City Hall, but then the demonstration moved to Central Plaza.

One woman was cited for blocking traffic on Market Avenue.
