Local officials, police and community leaders visited the neighborhood Saturday to show solidarity and support by rallying together for peace.
They went door to door asking neighbors to speak up if they know anything about the shooting.
The block was filled with activists from Western New York Peacemakers Most Valuable Parents of Buffalo and New Yorkers against gun violence.
"We have to stand together,” said Electoral District 35 Committee Member Desmond Nalls. “We have to unify. If we don't we will allow this to happen every single day. If you see something you have to say something."
"When people come out in great numbers like today it's saying there's more of us than there is of you,” said Ulysees O. Wingo, (D) of the Buffalo Common Council- Masten District. “So, we are going to make sure that you are uncomfortable doing this here again and if you do it here again we are going to say something. If we see something, we need to say something. It's really that simple."
"The community feels that because it doesn't involve them they don't have to say anything, but it could easily involve you,” said Devin Berder. “Being that it could easily involve you, you should say something."
After talking to residents and putting up signs on lawns, they came together to pray.
Police say they are increasing patrols around the neighborhood.
