BROWNSVILLE - Local officials in Brownsville are asking parents to call for improved neighborhood safety after a pair of shootings near P.S. 298 last week. School officials and community leaders rallied outside the school this morning, after Friday's shooting left Zurana Horton, 34, dead as she protected children from oncoming bullets. "This doesn't hit close to home," one resident said. "This is home." Protest organizers also announced a patrol watch for students for which they are encouraging all parents to volunteer. They say the community's violence is getting out of control, and that parents have to monitor their children's behavior.Police still seek suspects in fatal Brownsville shootingMother killed, 2 others injured in shooting outside P.S. 298
