Community shouts 'Stop the Violence,' on Albany streets

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. - A community shouted "Stop the Violence," loud and clear Thursday night on the streets of Albany.

SNUG, Cease Fire, and community activists joined together at the corner of Ontario and Second Street to hold a community shooting response.

This community spirit follows the killing of 23-year-old Iquan Carter late Tuesday morning.

Neighbors say the killing has to stop - that their kids need a safe place to grow up and that without investing in a community, change cannot begin.

"When the community begins to come together then it's up to the leaders in those communities to start directing them in the right path and providing those opportunities so that way they will put down the guns," said community activist Corey Ellis.

Police have not made any arrests in Iquan Carter's murder.
