Students at Miami Northwestern High School Hold Walkout Over Gun Violence

Dozens of students from Miami Northwestern High School held a walkout Tuesday over recent incidents of gun violence.

Footage showed students walking out of the school on Northwest 71st Street and onto a nearby road.

The walkout comes just days after an honors student from the school was killed in a shooting in Liberty City that killed another teen and left two others wounded.

The students waved signs and chanted "no justice, no peace" as they made their way to the area where the shooting happened.

"I think it will help people see us black people are coming together as one and trying to stop the violence," student Kaliyah Thomas said.

Some of the students said they were there to honor their classmate, 17-year-old Kimson Green, who was killed in the shooting.

"It’s hard because Kimson was an old friend of mine. We grew up together in elementary, middle high so it’s kinda heartbreaking," said Arrie McClendon.

"I’m out here to support and show love for my homeboy. We were close friends and I was with him Saturday before he died. It’s just shocking to see that," said Devonte Price.
