OLINVILLE - Friends and family of slain Bronx teen Ramarley Graham gathered in Olinville to mark the second anniversary of his death.

A memorial service for Graham was held Monday evening at Crawford United Methodist Church, where family members called for support in a lawsuit they filed against several members of the NYPD, including former Commissioner Ray Kelly.

Graham, 18, was followed by police into his Wakefield home, where officer Richard Haste shot and killed him, saying he thought the teen had a weapon. Officials say Graham had a small amount of marijuana, but was unarmed at the time.

Haste was originally indicted on two counts of manslaughter, but a judge tossed out the initial indictment and sent the case back to a grand jury.

The grand jury decided that there was not enough evidence to support the manslaughter charges against Haste and ruled against a second indictment.
