ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WSPA) – Protesters began marching in downtown Asheville on Wednesday night and left a casket full of dirt and what police believe to be cow manure at the front door of the police department, according to the Asheville Police Department.

Police say approximately 150 protesters gathered outside the municipal building, where Asheville Police and Asheville Fire Departments are co-located.

They have begun marching down College Street on the roadway and are blocking traffic at this time, according to police.
