MORGANTOWN, W.Va (WDTV) - Many in the Morgantown area gathered at the courthouse to protest after the recent death of Daunte Wright who was shot and killed by a police officer during a traffic stop.

The ex-officer was charged in the death of Wright earlier Thursday, and by that evening, community members were seen marching through the downtown area.
