New initative to reduce gang violence in Prince George's County

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown will be announcing an initiative to reduce gang violence in Prince George's County.

The lieutenant governor will talk about the initiative on Tuesday at Benjamin Stoddert Middle School in Temple Hills on Tuesday.

Brown will join Bill Hanbury, president and CEO of the United Way of the National Capital Area, as well as local community leaders and education officials at the event.

The United Way will launch a one-year pilot program in two Prince George's middle schools this fall.

A $50,000 state grant from the Governor's Office of Crime Control and Prevention is being matched with $50,000 from the United Way NCA to support the program.
