Local leaders joined members of the community in Bed-Stuy Monday to denounce gun violence.
The rally comes just days after a young man was shot and killed just steps away from home.
Neighbors in the community say the gun violence has been going on for far too long and it's time for it to stop.
Councilman Robert Cornegy Jr. lead the group as they called on the city to do more to keep the streets safe. It was just last Thursday when 22-year-old Shyheim Mclean lost his life inside a deli on Chauncey Street.
Authorities say McLean was shot multiple times. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams says hours later while police were in the middle of investigating McLean's shooting, another man was shot and killed just blocks away. Local leaders say they need the city to invest more to protect the area.
Residents and business owners in the area say they don't want to continue waking up to more gunshots, and they're hoping help from the city will finally come.
