Prayers for peace were offered Tuesday night near 42nd and Bedford. Members of Omaha 360 gathered to pray for an end to violence.
This wasn’t in response to a crime. The group's organizer says they're being pro-active and showing neighbors they're not alone.
Omaha 360 Director Jami Anders-Kemp said, "It's important because we've got to come out and say, you know, enough is enough. We're not going to take it. We are going to be out in the neighborhood. We're going to cut our grass. We're going to water our flowers. We're going have our kids riding their bikes. And we're not going to live in fear. This is our neighborhood."
The group plans to host similar events in other neighborhoods as well as job fairs and events for kids.
