Nobody kill anybody is the simple message of Cease Fire.

Hundreds of people held signs and spoke of unity within all of Baltimore's community.

As it's one year anniversary approached, Cease Fire weekends aren't always without violence, yesterday a man was shot in West Baltimore's 1800 block of Winchester Street, leaving him in critical condition

The events ultimate goal is to draw attention to crime and violence and give people a platform to speak out and come together.

Neighborhood resident, Annette Snyder hopes the violence comes to an end; "Too many people are killed out of anger and hopelessness every year and I don't want those I love and those I don't know to be victims of senseless violence."

On Sunday evening, a community dinner was held in the 1500 block of Ashburton Street to close out  Baltimore's fifth Cease Fire weekend.
