MILWAUKEE -- The playground at Clarke Street Elementary School, once filled with children, has been mostly empty since the shooting of  Sierra Guyton in May. 

The 10-year-old girl lost her life after getting shot in the head, while playing at the playground, and the outbreak of violence has some parents keeping their children away from city parks and playgrounds. 
 
The pastor at Tabernacle Baptist Church is holding a "Let the Children Play" event on August 17 -- a community movement to bring children and parents back to that playground.
