cleveland in the crosshairsCLEVELAND, Ohio -- A local reverend says he's had to comfort many victims of gun violence in the city.

The Rev. Stephen Rowan says his church, Bethany Baptist Church, is in the same neighborhood as many of the recent shootings in Cleveland.

He stopped at Fox 8 Tuesday to talk about possible solutions to the violence and why money just isn't enough.

In just the past couple of months, four children ranging between the ages of three months and 10 years have been shot. Three died from their injuries.

The city earlier this month marked its 100th homicide of the year; the number was up by 22.

In our series, we will look at how the city can curb violence, why it's become such a problem and talk to people who have been affected by it.
