A public health crisis: forum seeks to reframe gun violence in DC

 2020 is DC's deadliest year in 15 years, with 194 homicides reported so far.

11 of those homicide victims have been under 18-years-old, the youngest being 1-year-old Carmelo Duncan who was laid to rest Tuesday after being shot and killed on December 4th.
