100 Days

A peace rally calling for the end of gang violence in South Los Angeles was held in Hawthorne, CA. The rally was held in response to a long weekend of gang shootings in South Los Angeles. The hashtag 100days100nights is being circulated in social media by possible warring gangs promising 100 days and 100 nights of violence.
LAPD's South Bureau was put on tactical alert after the shootings. The city of LA is experiencing a rise in violent crimes this year.
The rally was held in the city of Hawthorne due to safety concerns to the rally participants which included several parents of children killed by gang violence in South Los Angeles.
