NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Justice for Jocques Coalition held a silent protest on Friday night.

Dozens of people gathered at Fannie Mae Dees Park at 6:30 p.m.

Protesters then marched through Hillsboro Village, carrying a black casket with them. They marched to what they believed to be Mayor Megan Barry’s house. It’s unclear if it was Barry’s home or if she was there at the time.

Protesters left the casket and the signs they were carrying on the fence outside the home.

The group then returned to the park and dispersed.

Jocques Clemmons was shot and killed by Metro Police Officer Joshua Lippert on Feb. 10. The district attorney announced Thursday he would not seek charges against Lippert.
