ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – On Tuesday, city and state leaders will speak up against gun violence in St. Louis.
Senator Jamilah Nasheed, Mayor Francis Slay and Police Chief Sam Dotson will discuss ways communities and police can work together to curb gun crimes on our streets.
Last week there were 15 shootings in 72 hours, two of which involved victims under the age of five.
“Something must be done to stop black-on-block violence. It saddens and concerns not only me, but my constituents as well,” Nasheed said in a statement. “It is truly distressing that innocent children are becoming the victims of gun violence that’s plaguing the streets of St. Louis.”
The discussion will take place at M.V. Market on 4300 North 20th Street starting at 10:00 a.m.
