Court documents say Ricky was shot shortly after running away from a traffic stop on October 16 of last year.

The officer in the case has been indicted.

Those who gathered say it’s not about the current case or the officer.

They simply want to remember and honor their family member.

The march began at Mount Zion Baptist Church on 14th Avenue.

It ended at the Union Cemetery.

Bell is buried there.

Family and friends released balloons at his gravesite.
