EUFAULA, AL (WTVM) -

Members of the East Alabama community will be holding a march to stop violence next Monday, Oct. 21.

The march is a response to an officer-involved shooting that resulted in the death of 26-year-old Cameron Massey on Tuesday, Oct. 15. They will proceed down Randolph Ave. and continue through the Edgewood area.  

"This is a small city," says Shanita Porter, an organizer for the march. "Instead of being against one another, we should be for one another."

Porter explains that they will not be protesting against the police, but against violence in general. "We don't hate the police. We do want answers, though. We do want the truth for the family's sake," she says.

The NAACP will be holding a city meeting after the rally at the Baptist Center in Eufaula, which is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m.
