OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) –

Black Lives Matter activists marched through the streets of downtown Cincinnati Sunday.

The peaceful event, called “Enough is Enough: Justice for Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and Sam DuBose,” comes after fatal police shootings of two black men in Louisiana and Minnesota last week.

Demonstrators started at District 1 Police headquarters at 4 p.m. and continued in a march to the intersection of 13th and Republic – the site where Timothy Thomas was shot and killed by an officer in 2001, sparking riots.

The march ended with a vigil at Washington Park.

“After the events in Dallas we need extra care to make sure that our rally is organized, disciplined and safe for anyone who comes out,” read a post from the Black Lives Matter: Cincinnati Facebook page. “For this purpose we are putting together a security/legal support team and a bail fund.”
