The loved ones of a Harlem man who was killed last month on Gun Hill Road are calling for justice and to end gun violence.
Keith Holden, 54, was shot on July 30. Nearly a month after his death, family and loved ones are calling for justice.
The victim’s family tells News 12 Holden was attending a party in Pelham Gardens when he has shot. They say someone dragged his body outside of the building before he was transported to NYC Health + Hospitals/Jacobi, where he died on Aug. 8.
Holden’s family says he supported a lot of the dance hall reggae community in the Bronx over the years.
Authorities say they are searching for 40-year-old Jabal Gordon in connection to Holden’s death, but no arrests have been made.
"We're here today to march and rally in peace, love and unity, and also, we're in pain,” says one family member. “We want to serve justice by instilling a sense of community and really thinking about ways in which we show up and to stop gun violence."
News 12 is told the victim would have turned 55 years old on Aug. 29. A birthday cookout will be held to celebrate his life on Sunday.
