18 to 29-year-old black men made up the majority of assailants and victims of gun related crimes in Tallahassee from 2011 to 2013. That’s according to a study from the newly-formed Community Leadership Council on Gun Violence.

DeLeo says the Committee is also using the study to identify which neighborhoods would most benefit from gun violence reduction efforts.
The FBI is now investigating the vandalism of another predominately black Wakulla County church and some signs on Wednesday. It comes after a number of the “KKK graffiti” incidents have struck the rural community.
Since the weekend, the KKK graffiti has shown up on three churches—most recently Mount Olive Primitive Baptist Church—a box truck, and some road signs. And, Wakulla NAACP Chair Anginita Rosier says if the culprit isn’t caught, they’ll strike again.
