High Point, North Carolina community members gathered on Friday to honor the life of Frederick Cox. Cox was an 18-year-old Black teen who was fatally shot in Nov. 2020 by a plain clothes Davidson County deputy while attending a funeral.
As shots rang out from a drive-by shooting, Cox was struck as he attempted to usher attendees to safety.
Cox’s family is advocating for justice, hiring civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump as legal representation to bring awareness to the case. Supporters are also using the hashtag #Fredslifematters in order to circulate the efforts.
Footage captured by WGHP Fox 8 reporter Daniel Pierce on Friday shows Fox’s supporters along with Crump ahead of the march.
