Anti-violence rally delayed one week

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, April 28, 2010

The Community Oriented Stop the Violence Rally and March scheduled for Saturday has been pushed back two weeks due to expected bad weather.

Forecasts show scattered thunderstorms with highs in the 80s and lows in the 70s for the weekend.

Vicksburg Community Resource Officer Danitta Reed said the event was organized at the wishes of a relative of 16-year-old Terry Tamal Robinson, who was stabbed to death on New Year’s Eve, to support families victimized by crime.
