BROWNSVILLE - Community leaders and local clergy joined dozens of residents in Brownsville's first Peach March, created in the wake of a fatal shooting of a 1-year-old last week.

Organizers say they wanted to show solidarity and promote peace in the neighborhood after 1-year-old Antiq Hennis was shot while being pushed in his stroller. Many of the participants in the march were parents who lost their own children to gun violence.

Participants say they plan to hold the march annually until they see a more peaceful community.
