TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW)-- Topekans gathered Saturday night to rally for civil rights at the statehouse.

The rally was organized by community activist Sunny Scroggins.

The event - in honor of the unarmed black teenager who was shot to death in Florida.

Trayvon Martin was killed last month in Sanford, Florida.

A neighborhood watch volunteer said he fired the gun in self defense.

No arrests have been made in the case that's now being investigated as a civil rights case by the justice department and the FBI.

Scroggins says the shooting was unjustified.

Former Topeka City manager Norton Bonaparte is now city manager in Sanford. He's promising a full investigation.
