On Thursday, October 10th, S.O.S. held a rally on the corner of St. Marks Avenue and Schnectady Avenue to mark the fatal shooting that occurred in this area on the night of Sunday, October 6th. Prior to Sunday’s shooting, there had been 30 days without a shooting in our cathchment area.
About 25 residents and supporters came to the event, including Youth Organizers from Youth Organizing to Save Our Streets. Neighbors at the rally came together to make their message heard to the community: “Stop Shooting, Start Living.”
