CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Nearly 100 people showed up for a rally held for Trayvon Martin in downtown Charleston Tuesday afternoon.

The Charleston NAACP held the rally at Marion Square with people in attendance displaying Martin's picture and signs supporting the teenager.  

The NAACP is demanding justice for the Florida teen who was shot and killed by a neighborhood watch captain. 

The rally also called attention to what the group says are "illegal acts" of racial profiling by law enforcement officials.
