Community leaders in Brooklyn are calling on the NYPD to create an emergency task force to deal with a deadly gang turf war.

Brownsville has seen 11 shootings in 15 days.

The shootings are thought to be part of a war between gangs at rival housing projects.

Residents say they want to see more police in the neighborhood, especially at night.
