Two residents of Pittsburgh's Garfield neighborhood said they're demanding action after a string of violence in their neighborhood.
Joann Monroe and Adrienne Young said they are working to better their community after an increase in crime, including a deadly home invasion on Wednesday.
Police said Wednesday night Michael Andrews was killed after he opened fire while attempting to burst into a home on Brown Way.
Two people inside of the home were shot and seriously hurt during the invasion.
Andrews and Monroe said violence in their neighborhood has spiked over the past six months and they want to put a stop to it.
"We hear the shots and we're very frightened and concerned about what's going on," Monroe said.
"We don’t want this type of activity going on in our community. Not again," Young said.
The pair have organized a rally for Friday at 4 p.m. at the Garfield Jubilee Center on Penn Avenue. The women said they plan to talk to Pittsburgh police about making noticeable changes.
