CLEVELAND – Clergy and community leaders gathered on Sunday  morning to rally against the crime and violence in Cleveland.

Three children have died in the last few weeks following shootings throughout Cleveland. Ramon Burnett, 5, Major Howard, 3 and 5-month-old Aavielle Wakefield.

City officials have also met several times to try and find a solution to the violence. Police Chief Calvin Williams recently said “enough is enough” adding “When are we going to stop counting babies being killed out here on the streets for nothing?”

The leaders said the focus of the march was on the families that lost their children.

They want the violence to stop before things get even more out of control.

Chief Williams urges any witnesses to come forward and contact police with information in these shootings. Crime Stoppers accepts anonymous tips at 216-252-7463.
