GOOCHLAND Co., Va. (WWBT) - Three Goochland County Public Schools delayed the dismissal of students out of the abundance of caution due to protest activity in the area.

The assistant superintendent said students and staff were secure inside the schools.

The protests are near the Goochland Courthouse and in connection to the officer-involved shooting death of 18-year-old Xzavier D. Hill.

The schools dismissed around 4 p.m.
