The Minnesota State Patrol says two people have been arrested relating to protests in response to a recent decision made in the Breonna Taylor case.

No police officers have been charged in direct relation to the death of Breonna Taylor in Louisville, Kentucky. One officer was charged with three counts of Wanton Endangerment.

Protesters initially gathered at the State Capitol and then marched towards I-94, then off the highway. The crowd ended up walking back to the Capitol to conclude their march, according to St. Paul Police spokesperson Steve Linders.

Law enforcement has intervened and barricaded all exits so protesters would refrain from returning to the highway. As of 9:30 p.m., highways are no longer barricaded and are open. 

This is a developing story. KSTP is following closely and will update with any new information. Be sure to refresh your browser for the latest.
