BROOKLYN - The NYPD’s top cop gave one Brooklyn community a major show of support at a rally to stop gun violence.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly made an appearance at the Grandmother's Love Over Violence rally on Pulaski Street and Stuyvesant Avenue Tuesday afternoon.

Kelly spoke at the event, saying in part, "We have worked with this particular group of grandmothers who are from a core area in Brooklyn and I don't think it's any coincidence that the violence and the number of murders, certainly shootings, in Brooklyn, have gone down significantly."

The police department says the borough's shooting incidents are down by more than 20 percent this year compared to the same time in 2012.
