According to police records, a total of 25 juveniles have been shot in Cleveland this year. While some of them were likely the aggressors in those shootings, many more were simply caught in the crossfire.

Community activist Zack Reed believes gun violence has reached epidemic levels with 69 homicides this year. Reed, Cleveland police and the Prince Hall Masonic Temple held a community discussion with teens on Saturday on ways to curb violence.
