Metro Police, religious leaders and neighbors rallied together Thursday night to stop the violence in one area of the Las Vegas valley.
There have been three separate murders at or near the Wynn Palm Apartments near Twain Avenue and Arville Street in the past three months. The latest happened just three days ago.
Police assigned to the area and community leaders said enough is enough. They helped put together a community celebration to help people feel safe and to keep more crimes from happening.
"There is no need to live in a complex or anywhere inside this valley where you can't feel that you can have a very high quality of life. And that is the message," Metro Police Captain Matt McCarthy said.
Church leaders who help put together these types of community activation events the gathering had one of the biggest turnouts they have ever seen.
