THE BRONX — Amid the summer fun at an NYPD block party Wednesday was trauma.
Two children caught in the middle of gunfire — yet somehow physically unscathed — are still shaken. Disturbing video shoes the siblings literally dodging bullets on a Bronx sidewalk. Their family is making a plea to stop the violence.
The NYPD threw a block party Wednesday to reach out to the community, in an effort to build relationships and curb gun violence.
But some neighbors said the move was too little, too late: living on this block for years, they’ve seen crime at their doorstep way too often without this level of support from officials.
