WILMIGNTON, Del. (AP) - Wilmington residents have gathered to remember the victims of gun violence in the city.

The Wilmington News Journal reports (https://delonline.us/29fbUlr ) that dozens of gold balloons were released Saturday at Prospect Run Park, where people gathered for a rally to end gun violence. The balloons represented people who’ve been impacted by gun violence.

Raymonda Demby said the group needs to “bring the community together.” Demby knew Aaron Fairley, who was killed in 2003.

Fourteen people have been killed in shootings in the city so far this year. Dozens of others have been injured. Last year, 26 people were killed and 151 people were injured by guns in Wilmington.
