RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A group of activists who earlier Saturday gathered to remember those who had died at the hands of police moved a scheduled march from downtown Raleigh to the North Hills area Saturday night.

The group NC Born gathered on Saturday afternoon and had planned to march through downtown Raleigh around 6:30 p.m.

However, they later drove from downtown Raleigh to Six Forks Road near North Hills to demonstrate Saturday night.
