Doctors aim to stop violence in the borough

BROOKLYN - Two Kings County Hospital doctors are starting an initiative to reduce gun violence as they see more victims wheeled into the emergency room.

Dr. Robert Gore and Dr. Reinaldo Austin are starting the Kings Against Violence Initiative. The doctors plan to work with victims and people who are likely to be involved in gun violence to try and help reduce not only the community effects of violence, but the burden that gun violence puts on the hospital.

The initiative is expected to begin this fall.
