Opposing militias met in downtown Louisville on Saturday, ending a tense standoff without any violence, according to authorities.

The Louisville Metro Police Department claimed to have advanced warning about two heavily armed militias that planned to protest on Saturday. The “Three Percenter” militia gathered in counter protest to the Not F—— Around Coalition, an Atlanta-based group that had traveled to Louisville to demand justice for Breonna Taylor.

Taylor was shot eight times in her home by plainclothes officers after her boyfriend shot at the officers, thinking they were robbers. The officers involved were reassigned, but protesters have demanded charges be brought against the men as they were brought against the officers allegedly involved in George Floyd‘s death in Minnesota.
