A Stop Killing rally is set for Friday in North Charleston.
The rally starts at 5 p.m. at Resurrected Life Ministry in Jesus Christ, 1906 Reynolds Ave.
The church's pastor, the Rev. Vanderbilt Evans, is a member of the North Charleston Police Department's Community Police Panel, police spokesman Spencer Pryor said.
The Police Department sent out an email publicizing the rally but is not involved in it, he said.
The flier says, "Our communities are dying but we have the power to stop it."
