THE BRONX - The family of a Wakefield teenager shot and killed by police in 2012 is continuing their call for justice.

Ramarley Graham was killed in his home by NYPD Officer Richard Haste on Feb. 2, 2012. Graham was 18 at the time.

Surveillance video shows Haste banging on Graham's home after chasing the teen on suspicion of drug possession. He eventually breaks in and fatally shoots Graham in front of family members.

An initial indictment of manslaughter was thrown out by a judge on a technicality. Later, a grand jury voted not to re-indict Haste -- who recently got a raise, making over $88,000 in 2015, according to public records.

The family was offered a nearly $4 million settlement from New York City, but they said money is not the answer.

A Department of Justice representative told News 12 that the investigation is ongoing, but had no further comment.

The family says they will keep protesting until they receive justice.

Following Graham's shooting, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton announced changes that included firearm and other training.
