At the site of the recent triple homicide outside a Castle Hill strip mall across from the Castle Hill House, Sheikh Musa Drammeh (the CEO of the Parkchester Times), Councilman Ruben Diaz Sr., and 87th Assembly candidate Sgt. John Perez demonstrated with community members to stop the violence in the community. Among those calling for an end to the violence were two former gang members who have become mentors to try to keep local children out of gangs.
Police have an alert out for the shooter who killed the three people, including a photo which has been distributed throughout the community. Police searched the Castle Hill Houses directly after the shootings, but were unable to apprehend him. Now the community is calling for an end to the violence.
