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.
