There have been several standoffs with the police and demonstrators and, so far, things have remained peaceful.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Activists gathered Tuesday night on Jefferson Avenue, where Daniel Prude encountered Rochester police in March, 2020.

They marched toward West Main Street before stopping outside the RPD Special Operations Section on Child Street.

This comes after New York State Attorney General Letitia James announced a grand jury’s decision not to charge any police officers in connection with Prude’s death.

Seven Rochester police officers were suspended with pay in connection to the incident: Officers Mark Vaughn, Troy Taladay, Paul Ricotta, Francisco Santiago, Andrew Specksgoor, Josiah Harris, and Sgt. Michael Magri.
