BROOKLYN - Members of an anti-gun violence group were on the streets of Bedford-Stuyvesant Thursday to let young people know that violence doesn't have to be the answer.

The group SOS, or Save Our Streets, was out educating youths after police say 20-year-old Samdrevious Head was beaten by a group of men and then fatally shot outside a church on Gates Avenue Monday.

SOS members say the victim had a history of bad blood with the men who killed him.

Organizers say the community went 58 days without a shooting before the incident.
