MIAMI (AP) - The Rev. Al Sharpton will join the families of two
teens who were killed in a Miami shooting last week to launch a
national drive against the "stop snitching" culture.

Sharpton is scheduled to speak at Friendship Missionary Baptist
Church in Miami on Thursday at 10:30 a.m.

Police believe a man with an assault rifle shot nine people who
had gathered for a dice game in Miami's Liberty City neighborhood
on Friday.

Injuries for 16-year-old Brandon T. Mills and 18-year-old Derrick Gloster were fatal. Police say they've had a hard time getting information from potential witnesses in the area.
