Hollis community residents rally for safer streets after fatal shooting


James Johnson, a Democratic City Council candidate for District 27, led a rally in Hollis on Friday, March 12, with community leaders — including clergy, small business owners, law enforcement and residents — to say “no more” to gun violence in southeast Queens after a fatal shooting outside a nearby liquor store. 

The group gathered near the site of the shooting at 204-13 Hollis Ave. to denounce the violence and demand safer streets. In his call to action, Johnson told community members to hold themselves accountable and to take back their community.
