DETROIT (WJBK) -

Metro Detroiters are uniting in signing a "Detroit Loves Aurora" banner, sending love, prayers and compassion.

"I want to have them have a blessing from the Lord to know that people are there praying for them and in their thoughts and prayers," said one person.

"I think it's a tragedy.  I feel bad for all the ones that suffered," another said.  "God bless you all, and you are in my prayers."

Detroit City Council President Charles Pugh came down to send his condolences from a city that knows all too well the daily heartbreak of gun violence.

"We understand tragedy here in Detroit.  Clearly nothing of this magnitude at one time, but little tragedies still have the same effect on you," he said.  "I just told them really to keep their heads up."

The banner is a Fox 2-Fresh 100.3 joint effort.  Wednesday morning it will be at the Detroit Zoo for the public to sign from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. From there, it will go the Mall at Partridge Creek inside the Parisian store.

On Thursday, the banner will be at Joey's Famous Philly Cheesesteaks in Southgate from 7 - 9 a.m. and at Community Choice Eastside with Renee Vitale from noon - 2 p.m.

    Hoax 'swatting' call sends dozens of cops to LI home

    Heavily armed police officers descended on a home in Long Beach, Long Island, Tuesday afternoon thinking they might find a grisly murder scene. Instead they found a terrified woman who had no clue what they were talking about and her teenaged son playing video games. "We received a phone call from a gentleman who stated he had just shot his mother and his brother," Long Beach Police Commissioner Michael Tangney said. "Unfortunately, this is a terrible national problem for law enforcement."

    An NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
