How to stop logging into /var/log/messages for a message with local6 as a facility

Solution Unverified - Updated -


I have a httpd configuration to send messages into rsyslogd with logger command with local6 facility and err log level.
And, I added the following configuration into /etc/rsyslog.conf to store the logs into /var/log/myhttpd.log.

local6.*    /var/log/myhttpd.log

But, I found a problem with /var/log/messages filled with many httpd messages.
How to stop logging into /var/log/messages about the httpd messages with local6 facility?
