On May 15, Councilman Curren Price, Chief Michel R. Moore, 77th Street Community Police Station and dozens of community residents gathered for a peace rally in the wake of a gang-related shooting at Vermont Square Park that injured four people, including a 5-year-old girl.
"The uptick in violence rippling through our South LA community is robbing my peace of mind and our neighbors’ sleep," said Councilman Price at the peace rally. "Sadly, last night a 5-year-old girl became one of the latest victims. This is unacceptable!"
Team Price stands in solidarity with the victims of this tragic act of violence. Now more than ever, we are encouraging our community to speak up if you or someone you know witnessed the shooting. You can report anonymously by calling the LAPD hotline at (800) 222-8477.
