UNIONDALE - Members of the Grace Cathedral International Church came together Sunday to march against violence after one of their own was gunned down last week.

Ainsworth Evans, 27, was found shot to death outside his Ditmas Avenue home.

The members marched from the church, located on Jerusalem Avenue, to where Evans was shot. About 200 people made the one-mile walk, wearing T-shirts with Evans' face on them. The marchers also had signs and carried fake caskets.

Church officials say they are offering a $2,500 reward for the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for killing the aspiring homicide detective.
