JACKSON, Tenn. - Nearly 100 Jackson-Madison County residents lined the streets of Carolane Drive to march against crime.

Carolane Drive is the street where 35-year-old Antwan Brooks was found beaten to death and became the 9th homicide of the year in Jackson.

"This is a terrible situation that Antwan lost his life...lost his life for an unreasoned thing," said Gertrude Copeland.

Residents said they are tired of all the violence and will not stand for it anymore. The march began at the site where Brooks body was found.

"We as a community we got to step up and we got to protect our children, and if we don't protect our children who is," said Copeland.

Residents said they will plan another march against violence.
