MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A group of young Memphians staged a small protest outside 201 Poplar Saturday to end police brutality.

Aryana Lumpkin said she was inspired to do something by the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Darrius Stewart, who she called a friend.

"It should've been more young people out here walking around protesting with me," she said. "If you won't stand up for this, you will fall for anything."

Lumpkin said she plans to hold another rally like this one and hopes more people will get involved.
