Bridgeport community leaders are expecting hundreds to take part in a march on City Hall tomorrow.
They say the march will honor the memory of 14-year-old Justin Thompson, who was fatally shot while walking down Seaview Avenue with friends early Sunday morning.
Organizers will also be remembering Greg Thomas, 26, who was murdered in the doorway of his home early New Year's Day.
They say the shootings focus attention on the need for more job and youth programs.
The march will start at 5 p.m. at 1248 Stratford Ave. Former State Sen. Ernie Newton will be leading the march.
