Shootings have plagued the headlines of the news in 2015, and Lebron James is tired of it.

Focused on the death of a 5-month-old girl, Aavielle Wakefield, who was shot in the chest on Thursday during a drive-by shooting in Cleveland, LBJ hopped on Twitter to share his thoughts on these incidents.
"Like seriously man!!!! A baby shot in the chest in Cleveland. It's been out of control but it's really OOC. Ya'll need to chill the F out," said Lebron on Twitter.
He followed that up with "C'mon man let's do and be better! Don't fall into the trap. This can't be only way. Accept more from yourselves. #TheLand #TheNation"
When asked what led him to speak on the shootings, Lebron said "It's the quickest way to get my voice out there, first of all, social media. Obviously it's not the first time that it's happened, but it's been happening a little bit too much recently." He finished off saying "I think it happened like in the last four weeks, four kids under the age of 5 or 6 years old have been shot and killed or very badly injured or whatever. It's just, there's no room for that."

Are we doing enough to stop things like this from happening?

I'm glad someone like Lebron stepped up to talk about this issue. This will get the ball rolling and hopefully other influential figures can step up as well
