ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Residents in a south St. Louis City neighborhood are saying “knock it off” to the dangerous so-called “knockout game.”

Residents along South Grand are coming together to find solutions to the knockout game which is when teens attack people at random.  There have been at least four incidents in the area and one of the random attacks ended in a death.

Around 130 people met at Mangia Italiano Restaurant to talk about more neighborhood watch groups and block parties.  In addition, they want people to go home from the meeting with a commitment to look out for each other.
