Family and friends held a memorial Thursday for a young Brooklyn rapper who was shot and killed last week after signing with a record label.
The memorial for TDott Woo comes on the same day that Mayor Eric Adams held an emotional news conference to address the wave of gun violence impacting New York City.
The rapper's 7-year-old brother was at the memorial and said he wants the killing to stop.
"I want to say this to the mayor. I want everybody to like stop the gun violence because everybody is just killing each other and killing each other," says Zayde Martin.
Mayor Adams also spoke about Bronx teen Jayquan McKenley to highlight the need for the city to do more.
McKenley, an 18-year-old rapper who went by the name Chii Wvttz, was killed days ago in Brooklyn.
"We must do better for young people like him," said Adams. "We must shine a light on places we have failed and build a society that offers our children sanctuary and support."
Adams is calling on city agencies to work together in helping children find homes, stay in class and stay safe both on and off the streets.
