Gun violence in our region — and who's working to curb it

Reported by WMRA’s Randi B. Hagi 

The toll that gun violence takes on local communities goes beyond the recent shootings at UVA and at a Chesapeake Walmart. Twenty-one people have died by gun violence in the region so far this year, and more than 30 more were injured in a total of 27 shooting incidents. Twenty-one of those incidents have happened since the start of June; seven have taken place in Charlottesville. This rapid series of shootings falls into a national and statewide trend of rising gun violence.
