LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- At the same time as the mayors statements Friday morning another group was talking about a plan of action to address the types of problems that lead to shootings like the two that happened in Louisville Thursday.

In total, six people were shot on 32nd Street – two men and a woman died in the shootings. 

Friday, the abandoned Boys and Girls Club in the neighborhood near 32nd Street served as a back drop for a news conference held by councilwoman Attica Scott and community leader Christopher 2X. Both denounced Thursday’s violence.

Scott, who lives in the Parkland neighborhood said she was afraid for her own children during Thursday’s chaos.

During the news conference she announced a new plan to use social media to spread a message if stopping violence.
 
The Group Connected Voices said they plan to have am online dialog to try and determine what's driving the killings and mobilize the community against them.

 But WHAS11 wanted to know how this is different from the constant calls for change ….click the video player above to see what Scott had to say.
