HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A march planned to honor the Harrisburg man who was shot and killed by police has been postponed.
The march was scheduled to be held Saturday at 11 a.m. It is now slated for Saturday, August 20.
A post on a facebook page created to promote the event said the march was postponed because organizers are “partnering with others invested in the community,” and because of concerns about the forecast for this Saturday. Meteorologists are calling for a chance of scattered storms.
Details on where the march will be held have not been released.
Earl Shaleek Pinckney, 20, was killed Sunday when investigators said he refused to put down a knife he was holding to his mother’s throat. His family said that account is not true.
The Dauphin County district attorney’s office continues to investigate the shooting.
