THE BRONX - Police and family members are still searching for answers one year after a Bronx teen was fatally shot in Haffen Park.

Kemar Brooks, 14, was fatally shot in Haffen Park last July. His friends say he was on his way home after playing tennis and no witnesses were nearby when it happened.

Patrick Watts, a friend of Brooks, says police patrols at the park have increased since his friend's death, but nothing has turned up.

A reward of $22,000 is being offered for information leading to the arrest of Brooks' killer.
