Cincinnati is extending a weekend curfew implemented as protests continue with more planned Sunday and Monday. A citywide curfew will now begin at 9 p.m., running through at least Tuesday morning.

A peaceful protest turned into a skirmish with police officers in downtown Dayton, as hundreds gathered to protest the death of George Floyd.

Around 400 people gathered midday Saturday to protest police violence against Black people. Floyd died after Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin pinned Floyd down with his knee on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes.

Gov. Mike DeWine is calling the Ohio National Guard into service after three days of violent protests in downtown Columbus.

Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther announced a city-wide curfew from 10 p.m.-6 a.m. beginning Saturday. Anyone on the streets past then can be arrested, he said. 

Rep. Joyce Beatty, the Ohio Democrat who was pepper-sprayed at a demonstration in Columbus on Saturday, says property destruction accompanying protests over the death of George Floyd is a "distraction to the message."

Speaking to NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday, Beatty said she understands the sentiment that attempting to have a "healthy dialogue" about race hasn't worked, but that "violence doesn't work — violence either way."
