For the 7th night in a row, protesters in Colorado Springs marched to protest police brutality and the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers last month.

An estimated 200 protesters marched down Willamette Avenue Friday evening, chanting "I can't breathe" and "hands up, don't shoot," before taking a knee at Bijou and El Paso streets. 

The march followed 9 minutes of of silence outside of City Hall, where had protesters set up a memorial with candles, hand-made signs and flowers to remember those killed by police, including Breonna Taylor, a Louisville EMT who was killed in a police shooting in March. She would have turned 27 on Friday.

About 100 protesters stuck around past the city's 10 p.m curfew, and at about 11 p.m., the protest wrapped up peacefully, with no confrontations with police. This was the third night in a row the nighttime protests in downtown Colorado Springs ended peacefully.
