NORWALK, Conn. (AP) — A Norwalk man who lost his son to gun violence says he took advantage of a meeting last week with Vice President Joe Biden and other officials to mention the toll that shootings are taking on Connecticut’s inner cities.
Amos Brown met the vice president during his visit last week to Danbury for a conference on gun violence.
Brown told The Hour of Norwalk (http://bit.ly/125NDGk ) that he talked about a need for action in a discussion with officials including Biden, U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy and other victims of gun violence. He said cities may not have suffered a tragedy on the scale of the Newtown school shooting but the death toll in inner cities is steadily climbing.
Brown’s son, Amos Brown Jr., was killed in 2010.
