NEW YORK(CBSNewYork) — Two rallies were held in New York City on Saturday, demanding the end to senseless violence.
The parents of a Brooklyn boy who was stabbed to death nearly two weeks ago called for an end to violence at a rally in Harlem.
The parents of 6-year-old Prince Joshua “P.J.” Avitto joined Al Sharpton at the National Action Network’s offices on 145th Street and Lenox Avenue on Saturday morning.
P.J. was killed and a 7-year-old friend was seriously injured allegedly at the hands of a man who police said has a long criminal record and a history of psychiatric problems.
