Franklin police Chief Kevin Anundson said he wanted to make one thing clear in the week after a unity rally drew hundreds of people to Bandstand Park - a small contingent of armed men in attendance were not there by invitation.

"We did not ask them to be there; in fact, I asked that they not be there," he said.
