Family members and loved ones came together in Bed-Stuy Saturday in honor the two-year anniversary of the day that one-year-old Davell Gardner was fatally shot.
They declared July 16 Davell Gardner Day, which they said is in effort to keep his memory alive forever and work toward ending gun violence.
Gardner was shot and killed while sitting in his stroller during a family barbecue in Brooklyn.
