A Nashville-based organization is calling for change nearly a week after two separate shootings—one of them deadly—involved Metro Police officers.

Nashville Organized for Action and Hope (NOAH) held a press conference on Thursday.

“Talk, talk, talk, we’re tired of talking, we’re tired of waiting,” said NOAH task force member Jane Boram. “Nashville cannot continue to kill innocent women. This has got to stop.”

Last week, 31-year-old Nika Holbert died in a shootout with Metro Officer Josh Baker that stemmed from a traffic stop.
