Several hundred people gathered at the fountain on Center Street and marched to the Wayne County Courthouse and the Goldsboro Police Station. Chants of “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” “Black Lives Matter” and “No Justice, No Peace” were heard throughout the evening. The demonstrators slowly began to disperse around 10 PM Sunday.
