EUFAULA, AL (WTVM) -

People in Eufaula took to the streets Monday, calling for an end to violence in the wake of an officer-involved shooting.

More than 100 people marched this afternoon seeking justice and an end to violence after 26-year-old Cameron Massey was shot to death last week following a traffic stop.

Organizers say they're not against the police. They're just asking for answers for the family.

Pastor Kenneth Sharpton Glasgow, Reverend Al Sharpton's brother, marched along with supporters, and he says there's power in numbers.

"We have seen throughout history that when people come together a difference is made," said Pastor Glasgow, Executive Director for the Ordinary People's Society. "When people come together in order God hears them. When God hears them, justice has no other choice but to roll down like streaming waters."

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation is in charge of this case and has not commented yet

Ed Dubose with the Columbus Chapter of the NAACP tells us he plans to go to Eufaula to meet with the family tomorrow.
