HIGH POINT, N.C. (WGHP) — Demonstrators in High Point held the “No Justice No Peace” march on Saturday afternoon to demand justice for Fred Cox Jr., who was killed while attending a funeral in High Point in November.

The march was led by Rev. Greg Drumwright and attorney Ben Crump after a press conference that started around 4:25 p.m.

“Next steps for us looks like us continuing to fight, continuing to put our knee on the neck of a broken criminal justice system,” Drumwright said.

18-year-old Fred Cox was shot and killed by a plain-clothed Davidson County deputy who was at the same funeral as the teenager.

In June, the Guilford County district attorney said no charges will be filed against the deputy.

“I am a bit concerned about the climate of the criminal justice system in North Carolina after Fred Cox’s death,” Drumwright said.

The march ended at the courthouse. Drumwright and Crump were joined by the mothers of Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery.
