Handgun Found During Cleanup To Remember Shooting Victim

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Residents were cleaning up Saturday to remember a woman gunned down over a purse.

It's part of seventh-annual "Philly Spring Cleanup."

Friends, coworkers and neighbors of Amber Long joined the efforts between Poplar and Laurel streets in Northern Liberties.

She is the victim who lost her life in January in that neighborhood.

Those who were participating said Long wanted to see the area thrive, and they want her spirit to live on.

During the cleanup, volunteers did find a handgun. It was handed over to police.

No one has been arrested in Long's murder.

In North Philadelphia, Mayor Michael Nutter joined residents as the put in a little extra elbow grease tiding things up at the Gideon School.

He, along with other volunteers kicked off the spring cleaning event Saturday morning.

Volunteers took away truckloads of trash, removed graffiti and even painted the schoolyard.
