No protesters were arrested on Monday.
Monday's protesters were continuing the overall message calling for an end to police brutality toward the black community. However, they were more frustrated after Sunday’s protests began peacefully but took a turn when police used tear gas on a group of demonstrators at MTSU and arrested people when a curfew went into effect.
A peaceful protest was underway in downtown Murfreesboro on Sunday afternoon.
It wasn’t all charged at Monday’s protest. There have been moments protesters and police have talked and even shaken hands or hugged.
"Hopefully, we can resolve the entire protest peacefully and get everyone home peacefully," Lamont Lockridge, who was protesting, said. "But, I would understand people who are mad. and everyone else has to understand that too."
Protests in Murfreesboro led to a state of emergency declaration and curfew set in place for Sunday night.
