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.
Rumor of KKK march in uptown is untrue! Vigil for victims of Charlottesville planned for tonight. @CMPD expects it to be peaceful.— CMPD News (@CMPD) August 19, 2017
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."
