Longview NAACP responds to recent shooting


Branden Johnson, president of the Longview NAACP, issued a statement decrying violence on Monday morning in reference to the recent shooting death of 23-year-old DeAundray Rossum in Longview.
Johnson was speaking for his own organization, the Longview Interdenominational Alliance and the Longview Clergy Coalition. About a dozen clergy members, city officials and representatives of nonprofit organizations stood beside him as he spoke.
The group plans to organize prayer walks to draw attention to local violence and spotlight other area options for young people.
