Families of murdered children speak out

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department provided support for families of murdered children on Friday.

Friday was National Remembrance day, and the Police Department hosted its fourth-annual event to allow families of murder victims time to grieve.

There has been an increase in the number of murders and shootings in Charlotte as of late -- and police say now the time is more important than ever for people in the community to speak up if they have information leading to unsolved cases.
