CMPD: Rumors of KKK march in uptown is untrue

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police says rumors of a Ku Klux Klan march in uptown Charlotte Saturday are false.

CMPD tweeted that a vigil was being held Saturday night at Marshall Park. About 250 people attended the vigil organized by Charlotte Uprising and no arrests were made, CMPD said.

City of Charlotte also tweeted a similar message, telling people that there will not be a KKK rally and that social media may be "sharing misleading information."

Tune to NBC Charlotte for the 11 p.m. newscast, as crews are at the vigil to provide the latest.
