Several acts of violence prompted an anti-violence group to take action Tuesday, and dozens of people marched across Crown Heights to get the word out to drop the guns.
Community members, in a march organized by Save Our Streets, took their message to the streets, fed up after five people were shot and a 1-year-old child was killed this week.
They say enough is enough. Demonstrators held signs and spoke out against recent violence.
"Standing together, marching together to denounce violence. Uptick in violence across the city, and we're saying enough is enough. We need guns down, and people to live," said anti-violence advocate Efay Charles.
In East New York, community leaders and the Man Up organization also came together to condemn the recent rash in crime.
Public Advocate Jumaane Williams says whatever the circumstance, including police brutality and racial injustice, neighbors should be outraged by all the violence.
Save Our Streets say it plans to hold more marches in Brooklyn this week.
