ELKHART — Local youth will lead a march in the Roosevelt neighborhood against gangs and guns Saturday.

According to a Facebook post from local anti-violence community organization “My Hood Needz Me,” youth will gather at the Roosevelt Center, 215 E. Indiana Ave., at 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7. The event will begin with a prayer, followed by a march.

There have been several incidents of gun violence in the area in the past week, including a burglary suspect who was shot after pointing a gun at police officers and two men who were shot inside a convenience store.
