Community and victim advocate, Andrew Holmes is calling for those responsible to come forward.

"Let's put a stop and an end to this gun violence," Holmes said. "This is a cycle from last year, the year before last. Just ongoing and it doesn't stop."

The shooting happened a couple miles away from a community rally to stop the violence in the neighborhood. That rally was in response to a Saturday shooting during a baby shower that injured six people, including two young children.
