Gang Violence Continues
"I knew he was in a gang, I just underestimated the harm that could come from them." says Walters.
Gang violence is a huge problem in The Bronx and Andy is just one of the hundreds of deaths caused by gangs.
"My girlfriend and I decided not to call for help in fear of other gangs finding us. We didn't want to get involved with any kind of gang related drama. If he wasn't part of a gang, then I definitely would of helped him.
Police conclude by saying that gang violence is a big issue all around the world. However, it is one of those things that anyone has little to no control over.
Officer Brad Reynolds says, "Gang Violence was always a problem in the past, and it is still a problem today. We are trying to stop it but most likely, it will still be a problem in the future."
