Some Cleveland funeral home directors hope a symbolic funeral procession will lead to real change.

African-American funeral home directors lined up 25 hearses for a funeral procession they hoped would stop some young people from ending up in one too early.

“We need to put the word out to the community to stop the nonsense and bury the violence,” Aubrey Bailey with the Miller McFall-Rogers funeral home said.

Bailey contacted other funeral home directors after the shooting death of three-year-old Major Howard last month on Cleveland’s east side. A five-year-old and a five-month-old also fell victim on nearby streets, caught in the crossfire of gang violence.
