The family of a murder victim hosted a "Stop The Violence" rally Saturday.

Mark Adkins has been identified by witnesses as the person who fatally shot Frederick Early back in May. The family says they would like to see and end to all of the violence in west Savannah and Garden City area.

The rally was held Saturday morning at the spot where Early was killed. They marched from the corner of Richards and Eagle Street in Savannah to the Grant Center.

"We're out here today to stop the violence. We need everyone to come out and join in, because it's time for us to get things together. We are just all out here and need some more people to come out and participate with us," said Frederick's Aunt, Tonya Green.

On Thursday the Savannah man accused of murdering Frederick Early was in court.
