Charlotte activists on Saturday will join demonstrators across the nation calling for justice in the shooting of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old who was shot and killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., earlier this month.

Saturday morning’s rally will also bring attention to the case of Jonathan Ferrell, a Charlotte man who was shot and killed by a police officer last year while seeking help after a car wreck.

The “Don’t Shoot, Don’t Bomb Peace and Justice rally” takes place at 11 a.m. at Marshall Park, 800 E. Third St. in Charlotte. Cleve R. Wootson Jr.
