WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - The family of a D.C. teen who was fatally shot in 2016 will gather together with the community in Northwest on Saturday to honor victims of gun violence during Wear Orange Weekend.
This year, Wear Orange Weekend will be held from June 7 to June 9. During the weekend, many people across the country will show their support for the Wear Orange Campaign by wearing orange in order to raise recognition for National Gun Violence Awareness Day.
On Sunday, Oct. 30, 2016, police said six people were shot at around 2:45 a.m. in the 6800 block of Walker Mill Road in Capitol Heights, Maryland. Two teens were killed during the shooting — 14-year-old Todd Webb Jr. and 18-year-old Brian Davis.
Following the shooting, Davis' family said there was some kind of fight in the apartment parking lot and they believe Davis was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Davis’ family and the community will #WearOrange on Saturday during their Wear Orange Community Event at Parkview Recreation Center “to honor victims of gun violence and to show undeniably that there is a movement with a community committed to end gun violence.”
The event will include speakers, resources and opportunities for the youth, according to a press release.
Parkview Recreation Center is located at 693 Otis Place, NW. The event will start at 1 p.m.
