BRONX, NEW YORK, JULY 10- A group of community residents and clergy members gathered in the Allerton section in response to a recent shooting of a 20-year-old male.
The group Stand Up to Violence (SUV) held a demonstration along Allerton Avenue and Wallace Avenue. The group’s planned rally had little effect on the days violence as Bronx homicide detectives were in Parkchester for most of the afternoon, after another 20 year-old was gunned down outside a playground with a toddler in his arms. The infant was unharmed.
In fact the borough recorded no less than five homicides in the past week, but police officials say help is on the way in the form of more patrol officers on the street.
