Liberty City Community To Protest Recent Shootings

Jul 15, 2014

Miami police are investigating a shooting in Liberty City that left two people dead. Up to 10 people were shot. The shooting happened in the 6500 block of Northwest 12th Avenue.

Miami's Liberty City community will rally in an anti-violence protest on Saturday. The residents will gather in response to a recent mass shooting that left two dead and five injured.

Since the mass shooting in June, a man riding on his bicycle was shot dead and 67-year-old Pastor Kenneth Johnson was also murdered in the neighborhood. Johnson was attacked by two young men who tried to steal money out of his hand and a gold-plated chain from around his neck.

City and community leaders say the violence must end. 

The anti-violence protest will start at  7:30 a.m.  Saturday at Mount Calvary Missionary Baptist Church, 1140 NW 62 St.
