SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) – A fatal shooting that has sparked rallies across the country is now energizing some Central Texas residents.

Daniel Scales and Lisa Marie Coppoletta, of San Marcos , are determined to keep the killing of Trayvon Martin, 17, in the spotlight – a case unfolding more than a thousand miles away in Florida.

The couple held a rally Saturday and were back out Monday afternoon holding fliers with Martin’s picture.

“It is a modern day lynching, but this time we used a handgun instead of a rope,” said Coppoletta.
