Weapons program and prayer look to stop Norwalk violence
The city of Norwalk is implementing a new weapon drop-off program in addition to a call for weekend prayer in hopes of stopping area violence.
Many religious and city leaders are still outraged over the Halloween night murder of 17-year-old Jeffrey Coward. The mayor says the teen's death prompted a new initiative called Stop and Drop, where residents can go to certain locations and get rid of illegal guns.
Meantime, Reverend Curtis, of Grace Baptist Church, and other religious leaders are uniting once again to put an end to the violence. They are asking everyone to go to their place of worship on Sunday and pray for the young people of the city.
