Renewed Urgency To Curb Violence Following Shooting Death Of 9-Month-Old

DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit City Councilwoman Saunteel Jenkins is involved in trying to get a handle on youth violence.  Following the murder of a nine-month-old boy Monday … her efforts take on a new urgency.

Speaking live on WWJ Newsradio 950, Jenkins was asked ‘where is the outrage in the community?’

“I think there is outrage in our community … every month we have people join us who are outraged by the amount of violence that’s impacting young people in our city, but one of the things we have to do is get these guns off the street,” said Jenkins.

Jenkins says there’s no reason for anyone who’s not in the military to be walking around with a semi-automatic rifle, which police believe was used in the shooting.
