Two 17 yr old students gunned down by a fellow 15 yr old student in the
hallways of Jefferson High School in Brooklyn, NY. Not an uncommon occurrance in East NY, an

than toting guns. In this neighborhood, a three block walk to school could be deadly. Producer
Maria Hinojosa examines the reasons behind Kids and Guns.
