CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Fox 8's Cleveland in the Crosshairs series continued Thursday, with former Browns wide receiver Reggie Rucker.

Community activists Carlos Williams and Angel Arroyo joined him.

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.

Williams and Arroyo are part of the Cleveland Peacemakers Alliance, a group that works with the police and schools to prevent gang and gun violence.
