Silent demonstrations in RVA pay respect to Marcus David Peters

Richmond

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A silent protest was held in Richmond Thursday night in memory of Marcus David Peters.

Peters was shot and killed on May 14, 2018, after he ran naked onto Interstate-95 and “charged aggressively” toward a responding police officer. Protesters began the night at a shrine that paid respect to Peters and continued into the night with peaceful demonstrations.
