MINNEAPOLIS -- Community members gathered to share frustrations Wednesday night on the North Side over the triple shooting that happened in the 2900 block of Lyndale Ave. North on Tuesday.
Three people were shot, including a pregnant woman and a 14-month-old baby.
There people who gathered were a silent majority on the North Side, done with being silent.
"Enough is enough. Our children are dying, people are being shot for no reason at all," North Side resident and mother Loretha King said at the rally.
So fed up, they gathered tonight, demanding their community change.
Demand number one came from the victim's family and was directed at people who know the criminals behind the crimes and don't tell police. Specifically, to the people who know who shot the victims on Tuesday.
"It could have been any one of our babies. You know something say something, don't act like you a snitch, you are being real," Teona Franklin, a victim's cousin, said.
Dotting the landscape of those making this plea were the faces of the next generation. At least a dozen kids attended the rally.
Kids learning from media reports and word on the street that shots get fired in North.
"We are dying by the thousands, the time is now that we let our voices be heard," Pastor Harding Smith cried out.
The group said they were committed that the North Side kids skip that lesson about shootings.
That they be the generation of change.
It takes fight...to get a community back.
A small no longer silent majority vowed Tuesday that the fight begins now.
"We need to check our children, know where they are and what they do and who they are doing it with. Enough is enough," King said.
The victims in this case are home recovering; 17-year-old Javar Smith and 19-year-old Trenay Garner came home on crutches late Tuesday, they were both shot in the leg.
The baby, My'Khalea Smith is being cared for at home as well, she still has a bullet lodged in her shoulder.
Police again are urging people who know anything to come forward.
