A peaceful protest in support of Lyndon Williams and his family took place Sunday evening.

Family and friends of Williams gathered and marched from the Lunch Box on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to Kinston City Hall. Participants are demanding answers in the investigation of Johnson's death.

Williams was hit by a Kinston Police cruiser and killed. The officer involved was placed on administrative leave while highway patrol investigates the crash.

Members of the Williams family told NewsChannel12 that they have a lot of unanswered questions and they want justice for Lyndon's death.

"Why hasn't anybody came to talk to us about the case," Charlene Hodge, a family member of Lyndon Williams, said. "What's going on. Is it still under investigation? Has it been closed? We don't know anything. We have no answers."

Hodge also said people need to know what's going on in Kinston, and people are looking for answers. Her message to the city council, The Kinston Police Department, and state troops "enough is enough"

Protestors also gathered in Kinston Sunday in support of Mr. Bruton, the man beaten by Kinston Police Officers, and Andrew Brown's family.
