PHILADELPHIA – At one of the several gun violence rallies going on in Philadelphia yesterday, 10-year-old Kevin Dudney shared his personal story about witnessing a shooting in his neighborhood.

“I was devastated,” the 10-year-old told NBC10.  “I had to go home and tell my mom, and I was crying on my bed.”

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter attended the rally at the Widener Library in North Philadelphia.  In his speech he drew attention to Dudney’s story and the indirect victims of gun violence.

“They make me feel that I want to get guns off the street, and I don’t want that to happen to any of my friends or family,” Dudney said.
