AKRON, Ohio (WOIO) - The city of Akron said Mayor Dan Horrigan signed an order Sunday morning lifting the downtown curfew.

The city announced his plan to do so Saturday, saying the curfew would expire if there were no public safety concerns.

Horrigan first issued the curfew on July 4 after mostly-peaceful protests for Jayland Walker took a turn, resulting in property damage.
