MILWAUKEE-18 Shootings since Sunday, including three homicides, so on Friday night the focus was on one event here in Milwaukee where the message was peace.

"It takes leaders like us to stand up and say enough is enough," said 16 year old Abena May one of several speakers to take part and plan the peace rally at Agape Community Center.

The children also signed a peace treaty and made a promise to get the word out among their peers that violence is not the way.

CBS 58's Bill Walsh has more.
