Brooklyn students marched in Crown Heights Friday morning to denounce gun violence.
The students came from several different schools, ages and backgrounds. With signs in hand, they marched along New York and Nostrand avenues. Their message was "enough is enough."
They say they are motivated by recent deadly shootings in the borough. Earlier this year, 13-year-old Troy Gill, a student at M.S. 354, was killed while walking home from a basketball game at Barclays Center.
