LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV)
East Texans in Longview are saying enough is enough after a rash of violence in their city.
The Longview NAACP, Longview Area Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance and the Longview Clergy Coalition spoke out Monday saying the are focused on a solution to end crime.
They point to the recent death of Deaundray Rossum on May 15 as a call to action.
"Today, I am angry," said Longview NAACP President Branden Johnson, " I am upset that good people die young, mostly over nonsense. I am outraged that some perpetrators remain at large protected by individuals in the community that will not fully cooperate with the police."
These groups will be holding number of events to help lower crime and bring unity to the community.
