FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - David Miller of Fort Wayne organized an anti gun violence rally this weekend at the Allen County Courthouse.
He is seeking justice for his grandson Spencer Smith who was killed two years ago at East Central Towers.
He invited the community out to hear about why he says it's important to change the gun laws, and what he believes could help Fort Wayne.
Although Miller didn't get the attendance he wanted, he said he's going to keep fighting for justice.
Leroy Allison lost his daughter, Alana Allison, to gun violence and said he understands what Miller is trying to do.
"A lot of people don't really pay it no mind until it really affects them. It's something he's passionate about, so I feel it should have been more people out here to support him. Because I know, between me and him, we had way more people get killed than just his grandson and my daughter," Allison said.
Fort Wayne Police, representation from JAVA, and Third District City Council candidate John Henry were also in attendance.
"Without the community, gun violence is never going to stop," Miller explained.
