Leaders in Lexington hope 'peace walks' will encourage end to violence

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, July 11, 2014 4:01 AM EDT

The mother of a 21-year-old Lexington man fatally wounded in April is joining with police to help end violence in the city, where a dozen shootings have taken place in the past three weeks.

Antonio Franklin Jr.'s mother, Anita Franklin, appeared Thursday with Lexington police Sgt. Rahsaan Berry, Mayor Jim Gray and other leaders to announce four "peace walks" starting on Saturday. The Lexington Herald-Leader says the walks will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., continuing on July 19, July 26 and Aug. 2, beginning at Duncan Park.

Berry's "We Care: Our Community, Our Future" initiative began last summer to fight gun violence and empower the community.

Gray says he hopes the efforts will help bring the community together to try to resolve the problems.
