SARASOTA, Fla. -- Suncoast residents are expected to gather Saturday at a Rally for Justice for the lives of Rodney Mitchell and Mike Brown.

The rally will take place at noon on Martin Luther King, Jr. Way at Pershing Avenue, just west of Washington Boulevard.

Organizers say they want to stand with people rising up in Ferguson and let it be know that Sarasota still demands justice for the shooting death of unarmed Rodney Mitchell by deputies in 2012.

ABC 7's Bobeth Yates will have a preview of this event tonight on ABC 7 News.
