A group in Stamford which included mayor David Martin, the city's police chief and members of the NAACP gathered in to speak out against gun violence.
The group spoke on the front steps of Bethel AME Church Tuesday night.
On Sunday night a 56-year-old man driving home from his job at Stamford Hospital caught in the crossfire of a shootout on West Broad Street near Lione Park and was seriously injured.
Recently, two other shootouts happened near Westover Elementary School right when school was letting out.
No one was injured.
Police say one arrest in those cases was made so far.
Police say there were a total seven shootings on the west side last month.
They say the shootings are likely a result of ongoing disputes between groups of young men.
