Memorial held for three Bronx men killed in the Patterson Houses

A memorial service was held Sunday afternoon in Mott Haven for three young men who were killed in the last seven months in the Patterson Houses.

Friends and family of Kevin Freeman, Gregory Chavis and a third victim gathered at Saint Rita?s Church for the special service. Mourners sang ?Amazing Grace? and prayed for no more violence in their neighborhood.

People who turned out for the memorial service also attended a community meeting later in the afternoon about the ongoing violence in the community.
