Nobody kill anybody.

Baltimore ceasefire is urging three days of peace for the fourth time this year, hoping it will help bring an end to all of the violence plaguing the city. 

The ceasefire starts on Friday and goes through Sunday. This weekend's events include a unity concert, a remembrance event, and a peace walk in an effort to bring awareness and unity to the community. 

So far this year, around 260 people have been killed with October being an especially violent month.
