Residents of Rockford's west side marched to take back their neighborhood tonight.
They joined leaders of Ceasefire for a rapid response to a shooting at Lee and Acorn Streets earlier this week. No one was hurt but Ceasefire leaders say every shot fired in Rockford should be taken seriously.
"I just want to accomplish better community effort, and getting some neighbors out to support the community and unity, to get response from police departments," says Cassandra Richardson, a Rockford resident.
Ceasefire leaders respond to every shooting in the city of Rockford in an attempt to bring peace to the neighborhood.
