Man shot near anti-violence rally

Police seek two suspects in connection with the Friday afternoon shooting of a man in Fordham -- just a block away from an anti-violence rally.

Witnesses report hearing three shots near Decatur Avenue and E. 195th Street, where the 22-year-old victim collapsed.

At the same time, about 50 families were gathered for an anti-violence event one block away.

Organizers say no one was harmed at the rally, and they plan to reschedule.

The unidentified victim was taken to Saint Barnabas Hospital and is expected to be OK.
