Neighbors band together, hoping community involvement drives violence out of neighborhoods
DENVER -- People from the Sloan's Lake and Highland neighborhoods gathered Sunday for a vigil in hopes of banding together and working to drive out violence on their streets. Police said there has been an uptick in violent crime in the area. On March 17, a teen was shot and killed while driving on West Colfax Avenue. A few days later, police said Brad Kottke was shot and killed while walking home from the grocery store on a Sunday afternoon.
