THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL)- Thomasville residents gathered on Magnolia Street to host a march in response to the fatal deputy involved shooting nearly two weeks ago.

The march Monday was organized by local pastors and representatives from the Thomas County NAACP chapter.

Some say these are the toughest times the community has ever faced.

Local pastors like Jeremy Rich are calling on the community to come together as one.

The group marched from Magnolia Street to the Thomas County Courthouse.
