Yonkers leaders fear possible gang war
Residents of Yonkers are pleading for an end to the recent rash of violence but community leaders are worried about a possible gang war.
Last week, purported gang member Steven Saez, 15, was shot and killed. Sources say he was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Moments after Saez's funeral on Wednesday, police say his cousin was stabbed in the neck on Palisade Avenue.
The recent violence has spurred community leaders to reach out to area gang members in an effort to stop senseless killings.Yonkers residents fear gang-related violence is on the riseCousin of Yonkers shooting victim stabbed after wake Family, friends remember teen killed in Yonkers shooting Cops eye gang violence in teen's murder
