MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) - Muskegon community leaders announced a Gun Buy-Back event coming up to hopefully help end the gun violence over the last few weeks.
Police, prosecutors, and church leaders announced the June 25th event Monday morning. The Gun Buy-Back event will be held at Corinthians Baptist Church in Muskegon Heights from 10a.m. - 2p.m. Leaders say they know that the event won't stop the violence, but every little bit helps.
The group of leaders also announced the forming of a social justice commission. The commission is going to explore more partnerships to help quell recent violence they say is being caused by a handful of bad youth in the community.
The group informally launched last summer, during a string of violence.
There have been five shootings in the Muskegon area in the last couple of weeks.
