Rally in Response to Shooting on St. Johns Place

On the night of Friday, December 6th, two men were shot on St. Johns Place between Utica and Schenectady Avenues. The following day, Saturday, December 7th, S.O.S. held a rally at the spot of the shooting to call attention to the act of violence that occurred there.

11 S.O.S. volunteers and 5 staff members came together to spread the message to passersby and the community: the shootings must end. Prior to Friday's shooting, there had been 55 days without a shooting in the S.O.S. catchment area. Many people on the street stopped and talked to the S.O.S. team about the need to end the violence.
