ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

On Saturday, folks will gather for the Stop the Violence March. 

Pamela King, the mother of teen, Justin King, who was killed in East Albany last year, organized the event. 

The march begins at noon, beginning at the crime scene on Old Blaylock Ln and making way to CW Heath Park on Maple Ave. 

Justin King would have turned 25 on Saturday. 

It's been nearly three months since Pamela Davis lost her only child to an act of violence.

King was found dead from multiple gunshot wounds on December 11 near the railroad track on Old Blaylock Lane. 

But for friends and family, his memory is not forgotten. 

A prayer would begin the march through the neighborhood to King's favorite childhood park. 

The march was to raise awareness to stop all violence in the area. 

"We having all these killings. All these senseless killings, it's not understandable," said Davis.

Signs were held that read "Justice 4 Justin." It's not just an expression but a sign of a mother's plea for answers.

"We need to put a stop to this," said Davis.
