St. Pete Mayor Rick Kriseman is kicking off a campaign to quell violence in the city’s neighborhoods.

ST. PETERSBURG — All residents are invited to the Not My Son program, which gets under way at the Deuces Live: Soulful Thursday (June 30) event. It starts at 7 p.m. at the corner of 22nd Street S and Ninth Avenue.

This is a special initiative designed to keep youngsters safe this summer, said City Hall officials.

Several homicides of young people have taken place in the past two years in St. Petersburg. Among the most recent was the shooting death earlier this month of Trevion Larkins, 15. After reports of shots fired, police found the youngster’s body at the intersection of 14th Avenue S and 40th Street. A suspect was arrested and charged with second-degree murder.

For more information, contact City of St. Pete Education and Community Engagement Director Leah McRae , at leah.mcrae@stpete.org or call (727) 893-7174.
