Marchers call for justice in police shooting

HUMBOLDT, Tenn. (AP) -- Hundreds of marchers walked peacefully through the streets protesting the death of Roy Glenn Junior, saying they want to make sure justice is served.

Police have said the 29-year-old Glenn was shot and killed by a Humboldt police officer in February after a traffic stop.

The Jackson Sun reported Sunday that many of Saturday's marchers carried signs as they walked more than a mile from Rose Hill Cemetery, where Glenn is buried, to the Humboldt Municipal Center.

Police have said Roy Glenn Junior was a passenger in a car that was stopped by officers when he jumped out and ran. Police said he was chased by Humboldt police officer Paul Carrier, also 29, who then shot and killed him.

Carrier remains on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
