In light of the recent rash of shootings in Utica, community leaders are getting together to host a second Shots Fired forum in an attempt to find a way to put an end to gun violence.

Utica 5th ward Council member Jerome McKinsey says everyone in the community can do their part to help make the City a safer place.

The Shots fired forum will take place on Monday at the Thea Bowman Auditorium at 6:00 and will be open to the public.
