Men Aiming Higher, a non-profit youth advocacy group in Prince Georges County sponsored tonight's forum on youth violence. Last year a student was shot at Suitland High School by another student over a pair of Timberland shoes. Another kid was shot at Central High School after being bullied. In the wake of the Trayvon Martin case, Men Aiming Higher invited students and community activists in PG County to talk about youth crime. The information gleened from the forum will be given to the county's police chief and states attorneys with hopes that they can prevent further violence among young people.
