Panama City Officials Joining 'Stop the Violence' Events

By  | 

PANAMA CITY-- Panama City officials are backing "stop the violence" groups.

In the past few months, we've seen several deadly shootings.

A member from the group called "concerned citizens of Bay County" shared her ideas about their latest event at the Panama City commission meeting this morning.

On July 26th, a "stop the violence" peace memorial march will start from Bay Medical Sacred Heart, head down Martin Luther Kind Boulevard and will end at Tommy Oliver Stadium.

Even some commissioners are getting involved.

"I'm going to attend something Saturday and its just one of those things, an awareness thing, to let people know that it’s not going to be tolerated. I know our police department has been working with them closely and with some of those families because it was really needless things that could have been handled a different way than shooting each other," said Greg Brudnicki, Panama City Mayor.

The mayor along with other officials will be attending this Saturdays "stop the violence" panel discussion at Martin Luther King, Jr recreation center.
