Rev. Al Sharpton and others rallied Saturday in support of a federal investigation into the shooting death of NYPD officer Omar Edwards.
Edwards reportedly was shot three times Thursday night by fellow NYPD officer, Andrew Dunton, of Long Island.
Police say Edwards was off-duty when he chased a suspect he believed broke into his car Thursday night. Dunton reportedly shot Edwards thinking he was the suspect.
At the rally, Sharpton said he wasn't playing the race card, but rather trying to stop it from being played on black police officers. Edwards is black and Dunton is white.
