Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams was among marchers who took to the streets on Sunday against the violence that has recently plagued Brooklyn communities.
The NYPD says shooting incidents are up by 88% compared to this time last year. Officials say the city has surpassed 1,000 shooting incidents this year to date, a number not seen since 2015.
It's why Adams and community members came together Sunday to march for peace. They went from Borough Hall to Restoration Plaza, with arms linked.
The NYPD had said before Labor Day weekend that hundreds of officers would be out across South Brooklyn and the five borough as part of what they called a preventative holiday weekend plan.
