New Yorkers hit the streets of Brooklyn Saturday for a peace walk to protest the recent gun violence across the city.
Several community organizations began at the Bedford-Stuyvesant housing complex where a 3-year-old boy was grazed in the leg by bullets earlier this month.
The Fathers Alive In The Hood Organization planned the march and the group's president, Kenny Carter, hopes the community presence will spark change.
"Violence has no borders, so we have to extend ourself in every which way possible to create change in our communities," he said.
"A lot of people are lost nowadays," said a person who attended the march. "They're looking for something that they're missing and they're turning to violence and it's not the way to go."
Similar future marches are being organized for the Bronx and Harlem.
