Jurors could not reach a unanimous decision on either count despite 25 hours of deliberation, leading Shanahan to declare a mistrial after 10 a.m. Saturday. 

Black Lives Matter protesters gathered outside the Hamilton County Courthouse around noon. 

They wanted Prosecutor Joe Deters to retry the case, and so they marched through downtown. 

Black Lives Matter activists followed the court proceedings from just outside the court. 

Police worked with protesters to ensure the demonstration remained peaceful.
