Teachers, faith leaders and cops march in Milwaukee to reclaim safe playgrounds

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Over 100 people marched from a Milwaukee church to a north side school where kids have been hesitant to use a playground after a girl died from a stray bullet.

Teachers, police officers, and faith leaders were among those helping kids reclaim the playground Sunday at the Clarke Street Elementary School.

That was where 10-year-old Sierra Guyton was shot in crossfire as two teens were shooting at each other the evening of May 21st. Sierra died in mid-July after two months on life support.

One of the alleged shooters just recently had his charges upgraded to homicide.

The crowd at Sunday's event chanted "Let the children play, each and every day."

The event started at Milwaukee's Tabernacle Community Baptist Church where Sienna's funeral was held. The crowed then marched to the school about 3 blocks away.
