JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Members of the anti-crime group MAD DADS were at the Cleveland Arms Apartments Saturday passing out fliers and asking people for information about last week’s shooting that claimed the lives of two women and a baby.

Police arrested David Anderson, 21, in connection with the deadly shooting that left 18-year-old Xacia Burnem, 22-year-old Kadejah Williams, and Williams' son, 11-month-old Tedashii, dead. Two other people were wounded but survived.

Burnem's mother, Pamela Williams, joined MAD DADS in asking for more tips in the case.

"I just want this violence to stop,” Williams said. “It’s nonsense.”

Residents in Cleveland Arms have pleaded for witnesses to the mass shooting to come forward.

“We’re out here today asking this community to break the code of silence not only (in) this community, but the entire (city of) Jacksonville,” MAD DADS Jacksonville President Donald Foy said.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-866-845-TIPS.
