Concerned New Yorkers will gather on street corners again Friday in response to the recent rash of gun violence in the city.

It's all part of the National Action Network's "Occupy the Corners" initiative.

Residents and leaders will be in some of the city's high-crime areas from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. this weekend.

They'll watch out for signs of violence and talk with community members.

Rev. Al Sharpton will visit three locations tonight in Brooklyn with District Attorney Charles Hynes.

This is the second of four weekends for the "Occupy the Corners."
