PHILADELPHIA - Dozens of people walked through Southwest Philadelphia Wednesday night to take a stand against the violence in the city."My brother, my son," said Angela Ford and her daughter Naquawn Hill.

They were walking for their loved one 31-year- old Elgin Battle who was killed July 16, 2021. They say he was barbequing with family and friends when he was shot in Bartram Village. "A 14-year-old got shot and his kids got his blood all over them.

It was bad," said Ford. She says they joined faith leaders and 12th District Police for a peace march Wednesday evening to stand up for her son and other victims of violence. "I don't want my son to die in vain and I gotta do what's right," said Ford.
