FLATBUSH - Community leaders in Flatbush are calling for peace in the wake of a string of violent crimes in the neighborhood.

In the past several weeks, the community has suffered a deadly shooting, an armed robbery and a Molotov cocktail arson attack.

Politicians and religious leaders joined residents in calling for the community to unite against the violence at a community forum Friday.
