THE BRONX - The parents of a Bronx teenager shot and killed by police say they are renewing a call for justice with weekly vigils, the first of which was held today.
Ramarley Graham, 18, was unarmed when he was killed inside his Wakefield home during a failed drug bust in February. Loved ones say they won't back down until the officers involved are arrested and prosecuted.
Today, dozens of people came together on East 229th Street, where Graham was shot, calling for the indictment and conviction of the officer who allegedly shot and killed the 18-year-old.
The participants of the vigil say they will continue to protest for 18 consecutive Thursdays until they see results.
Officer Richard Haste has not been arrested, but Graham's family has met with the police commissioner.
