HEMPSTEAD - The Long Island Law Enforcement Alliance has launched an initiative to help end gun violence in Hempstead.

The group, made up of police from across the state, held a news conference in Hempstead today on the street where a 17-year-old was shot and killed earlier this week.

Long Island Law Enforcement Alliance will hold an emergency community meeting Monday night at the Union Baptist Church.

Hempstead's mayor says he encourages the group to meet with him and village police.
