Hundreds of residents, many of them in tears, gathered at The Palms Apartments in July after two teenagers and one man were shot to death.

On Saturday, they gathered again at The Palms on Mercy Drive, this time to promote peace.

The event, called "A Labor of Love to Stop the Violence," took place in a courtyard near the apartment where the three people were killed. It was the latest of several events focused on making life better at the complex.

Dozens of children did back flips on inflatable bouncers, while adults cooked and met law-enforcement officials. Church members sang and prayed, and others called on residents to be peaceful.
