Marchers in Battle Creek protest recent violence

AP Wire • Jul 21, 2015 at 11:46 AM

About 2,000 people, including students from across Calhoun County, participated in Friday morning's march. It began in front of Battle Creek Central High School. Students were silent as they marched, waving signs at motorists.

The march ended with a rally.

The events were planned after people posting online blamed "thugs" and "gangbangers" at the school for a Sept. 28 shooting that happened nearby. Police said at least two Central High School students were involved, but educators said they don't represent the 1,200-student school.
