Marchers Protest Miami Police Shootings

Marchers will walk from Overtown to police headquarters

Protestors angry over a recent series of deadly police-involved shootings in Miami are set to hold a community march Thursday.

Marchers will walk from Gipson Park in Overtown to Miami Police headquarters beginning at 5:30 p.m., organizers said.

The protestors are demanding a more thorough investigation into the seven shootings and demand Police Chief Miguel Exposito's termination.

Since July 2010, seven African-American men have been shot and killed by Miami Police, two of them reportedly unarmed. Exposito has said his department is investigating each case.

Earlier this week, Reverend Al Sharpton was in Miami, where he announced at an NAACP meeting that he'd written a formal request to the Justice Department asking them to investigate whether police misconduct may be to blame in these cases.
