‘Stand Up To Violence’ holds rally in response to violent incidents in the Bronx
A nonprofit organization held a rally Thursday in response to a number of violent incidents that happened over the weekend.
‘Stand Up To Violence’ has been working remotely due to the pandemic, and say this is one of the first shooting responses it has conducted to let the community know that it is still out there fighting against gun violence.
The march started on the corner of Allerton and Barnes avenues. The group walked about a half-mile to Bronx Park East, where police say a 37-year-old was killed.
On Sunday at around 3:10 a.m., police say they responded to a 911 call of a man in front of 2760 Bronx Park East.
They say when officers arrived they found the 37-year-old was unconscious with a gunshot wound to the head.
EMS pronounced the man dead at the scene.
