Almost a month after the senseless shooting deaths of 1-year-old Marcus White Jr., who was killed at an East Hills community picnic with his aunts; 16-year-old Delasia Detrieuille, who was killed in a housing complex when confronting two boys who allegedly had robbed her of a gun she was trying to sell earlier in the day; and John Haas, a jitney driver who was killed while picking up a charge in a McKeesport housing complex because his vehicle was mistaken for a rival gang member’s, the community will come together to take a stand against the acceptance of senseless violence in their neighborhoods at Pittsburgh’s Juneteenth Stop the Violence & Community Awareness Event on June 29 at Stage AE from 1-4 p.m.
