AKRON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – 50 Akron and other area residents were arrested early Monday in Akron for rioting and failing to disperse during a Jayland Walker shooting protest in the city.
Police say a small group within a larger peaceful group broke windows, damaged other property and even set a couple of fires.
This came after police ordered everyone to leave after a midnight curfew.
A chemical irritant was even used to move the crowd along.
Police and the Walker family continued to ask for peace last night.
A Monday dayside protest was said to be much smaller and peaceful.
There were reportedly two arrests.
