After a violent weekend, Baton Rouge leaders are coming together Tuesday to hold a community meeting to address gun violence prevention.

Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome’s office released details Monday about the meeting.

Mayor-President Broome and Police Chief Murphy Paul are calling together community members from all walks-of-life (adults, youth, faith-based, non-profits and law enforcement) to discuss the incidents that happened in the past few days.

More than a dozen people were hurt in multiple shootings across the city over the weekend. 

The Mayor-President’s office said City Parish officials will provide a briefing on current and future plans around violence prevention, as well as facilitate an open community discussion to drive immediate solutions for Summer 2019 and going forward.

The goal is to walk away with action steps to increase the peace in our community.

This community meeting is Tuesday, July 2 from 6:00pm – 8:00pm at the Main Library at 7711 Goodwood Blvd.
