THE BRONX - Bronx residents are taking a stand against what they call a spike in violence in neighborhoods.

Members of Community Board 4 gathered Wednesday on the steps of Bronx County Courthouse. They say the campaign aims to clean up graffiti, guns and gangs in the area.

The campaign comes after three separate shootings in one night earlier this month.
