CINCINNATI -- Hundreds marched downtown Saturday after Judge Shanahan announced a mistrial in the Ray Tensing murder case after jurors were unable to reach a unanimous verdict. 

The group organized hundreds on the plaza outside the Hamilton County Courthouse after jurors deadlocked for four days on the murder and voluntary manslaughter charges against Tensing, a former University of Cincinnati police officer.

The group marched through Downtown, and while generally peaceful, there was some friction: At one point, the crowd blocked Main Street at Court Street. Police officers lined up next to the sidewalk, trying to keep them out of the road.
