THE BRONX - A Bronx mother paid respect today for her teenage son who was killed 19 years ago.

Shawn Lamont Williams was killed in 1993 at the age of 17. He was fatally shot after an altercation with another young man who served less than two years in prison.

Each year, Elizabeth Thompson is joined by friends and advocates, who have marched to the spot where her son was killed three blocks from her home.

She says this year is the last year she will march, but she will continue to advocate against gun violence in her neighborhood.
