Dear Community,

We are saddened to inform you that on Wednesday evening, two teenagers from our neighborhood were shot outside of St. John’s park. An 18-year-old boy was fatally wounded, and a 15-year-old boy was injured. Please come together with us to respond to this tragedy and to ask our community to put down the guns.

We will gather to respond 6 PM on Friday, March 23rd at the corner of Schenectady Avenue and Prospect Place. Please be prompt.

We respond to every shooting that occurs in the S.O.S. target area to ensure that these tragedies do not pass unremarked as though they are normal and acceptable. We create a safe space on our streets, at the site of the shooting, where neighborhood residents can raise their voices in protest.
Stop Shooting. Start Living.
