A 52-year-old Chicago man who spent years warning kids in one of the most violent neighborhoods in the city about the dangers of guns and gangs has been shot and killed.

Chicago Police say Henry Daniels was in an alley in the East Garfield Park neighborhood on the city's West Side on Friday evening when he was shot in the leg, abdomen and back. He was pronounced dead a short time later at Norwegian American Hospital.

The Chicago Tribune reports that people in the community where Daniels lived told of how Daniels talked to children about ways they could resolve disputes without resorting to violence.

Police say no arrests have been made.
