POMONA (KTLA) — Residents of Pomona hit the streets on Saturday afternoon to protest recent violence that has plagued the city.

Hundreds of residents marched two miles to City Hall in the “Stop the Violence” rally.

The city has reported nine homicides so far this year, including the killing of a 13-year-old.

“This march is for him and every other young person we bury,” Pastor Christopher Cotinola said of his son who was killed.

Cotinola, of Victory Outreach church, helped organize the rally.
