COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) -- Thursday night, more than 100 people hit the streets in Downtown Columbus to demand change from police.

The march from Columbus Police Headquarters to the Ohio Statehouse was to remember and honor lives lost at the hands of violence in Ohio and across the nation. Those on hand say they especially want answers after the recent shooting death of Henry Green. the 23-year old was shot and killed by Columbus Police last month in South Linden.

"Black Lives Matter is not against the police. Police have a right to go home as well as anyone else. We are here demanding justice and to no longer allow these cases to be swept under the rug and go on as if a child's life has not been lost," said Tammy Alsaada from the People's Justice Project.

One organizer from the march was arrested by Columbus Police according to those on hand.
