"Well, the first thing that goes through my mind – I have a 17-year-old – and as a mom I am very concerned about what's been happening and what's going on and what keeps happening in the community," said Crisine Blakely.

Blakely said children need an outlet – someone to talk to and be taught about the repercussions of one's actions have on their own lives as well as the lives of others.

"We all need to work as one to try and curb what's going on. We can march we can yell we can scream we can cry. But there's nothing that can change until we absolutely make a change and that starts with us by reaching out to the community leaders. We need the community leaders to wake up," Blakely said.

No arrests have been made.
