Hundreds of people turned out for the second of two protests that was held in South Bend on Saturday. Both were in response to the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody in Minneapolis earlier this week.

The second protest got started at the Charles Martin Youth Center at 6 p.m., with the march shutting down Lincoln Way West as demonstrators made their way to the County City Courthouse.

"I wanted to come out today because we need change. This has been going on for way too long," said Gavin Herbert.

Protesters also headed to the South Bend Police Department, where some acts of vandalism took place, including on a 16 News Now news car.

The protest was not only to seek justice for George Floyd, but also Eric Logan.

He was shot to death by a South Bend police officer last summer. In March, it was announced that officer would not be facing charges.

"As I've said all along, all officers are not bad....just a few bad apples ruin it for everyone," said brother of Eric Logan, Tyree Bonds.

But family members say they will continue seeking justice, and Eric Logan’s brother was among those participating in Saturday’s protest.
