Members of the Walk the Line project stretched a 900-foot chain of bullet casings along the Brooklyn Bridge Wednesday to bring attention to the nation’s epidemic of homicide.
Each of the 4,000 bullets held up by the bridge crossers represented a homicide victim and the total is only a quarter of the 16,000 murders committed nationwide.
Volunteers also wore placards showing murder and crime statistics in the United States.
"I just want people to be aware to look around themselves and realize that if we don't do something about this issue, the next person who unfortunately gets killed could be you or someone you love," said Zaxxr Guerro Llewellyn, founder of Walk the Line Project.
The project began four months ago in California with the same purpose of bringing awareness to homicide.
