undreds of students from around the Twin Cities march from Gold Medal Park to U.S. Bank Stadium during a student walkout and march to protest gun violence.

Hundreds of teens flocked to downtown Minneapolis on Tuesday demanding elected officials, from school board members to state legislators, adopt a series of measures to curb gun violence in the wake of last week's horrific school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

Lillie Franklin, 16, traveled from Fridley to rally at Gold Medal Park and march to U.S. Bank Stadium in hopes of conveying the sense of unease she has felt over the past week.
