Cure Violence - a program meant to help curb violence - launched an office in the Dutchtown neighborhood in September. The office has a site manager, outreach supervisor, two violence interrupters and one outreach worker. The office is looking to fill other positions as quickly as possible.
According to St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson's spokesperson Jacob Long, Thursday's shooting occurred outside the 10 by 10 block catchment area, however, the team did response to the scene to collect intel in hopes of preventing retaliation.
Cure Violence addresses violence as a public health issue.
"We look at violence from a health perspective, so if we're looking at it from a health perspective, we got to start putting out the little fires before they become big forest fires," Marcus McAllister, an International Trainer with the Cure Violence Global Team said back in August.
