Hundreds of pairs of shoes covered the street in South Los Angeles on Friday evening, each representing a life lost in a shooting, as residents demonstrated to call for an end to gun violence.

Local residents, clergy members and law enforcement officials including L.A. Police Chief Michel Moore came together at the intersection of Manchester and Vermont avenues to push for federal gun control legislation.

“We’ve got to come to terms with the consequences of gun violence, the devastating cost — the lives that are lost, and the lives that are impacted for generations to come because of just senseless violence," Moore told KTLA.

Officials estimate that three people die every day from gun violence in Los Angeles.
