Reverend Sharpton says he is calling for Terence Crutcher's four kids to get financial help and that other police officers who were at the shooting scene to be investigated. 

According to organizers, Rev. Sharpton will take the stage at the Greenwood Cultural Center at 322 North Greenwood Avenue at 2 p.m. followed by a march to Tulsa city hall starting at around 3:45 p.m.

Rev. Sharpton will also attend a rally along with a number of civic and religious leaders at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame at 111 East 1st Street.

Elsewhere in Tulsa, area law enforcement are planning to hold a peaceful gathering at Tulsa's Hunter Park to show support for Tulsa law enforcement.

The event is set to also begin at 2 p.m. and organizers say they want to show solidarity for "our brothers and sisters in blue as Tulsa County's district attorney rushes to judgment against one of our own, without benefit of a full and complete investigation."

Hunter Park is located in the 5800 block of East 91st Street.
