Today funeral services are being held for Eric Logan at a church in Mishawaka. Logan is the black South Bend man who was killed by a white SBPD officer on June 16.

Prior to the funeral and separate from it, a march and rally is going on in South Bend called Stand Against Violence Everyday or S.A.V.E. It started at LaSalle School and ended with a tent revival style rally for neighborhood peace.
