No one should have to die at the hands of violence. That was the powerful message shared at a Stop The Killing rally held in Nashville.

Pastor Howard Jones put on the rally at Hadley Park Sunday evening. During the gathering, people prayed for the youth of our city and the family of Daniel Hambrick who was shot and killed by a Metro officer.

Jones said whether it’s police-based or civilian-based, senseless killing is just that: senseless.

“If you are afraid of us and afraid to serve those who you are given the order to protect,” Jones said, “then you should not be in our community. There's no way for you to serve those who you are afraid of.”

A church service with an all-male choir was also held in the park. Jones said men need to come together and be examples for younger teens in our community.
