We are just over a month into 2023, and there have already been five homicides in Toledo, with three of them involving juveniles.
That has groups like the Coalition for Peaceful Toledo Neighborhoods coming together to hopefully find solutions.
The group was founded by four former Toledo mayors along with other community leaders.
One of the founding members in the group is Rev. Dr. Stephen Swisher of Epworth United Methodist off Central Ave. who took part in a press conference on Saturday at St. Martin De Porres Church to address issues of gun violence.
Swisher says he feels compelled to do something even as the violence continues.
