Family and friends gathered at the corner of 3rd Avenue and Baltic Street Saturday as the street was renamed after a Brooklyn man who was fatally shot.
Kenneth Casilla, 20, was an aspiring rapper who was killed in Miami 9 years ago. His mother tells News 12 that her son sent her one last text after he had been kidnapped. His kidnappers then sent her a picture of Casilla’s dead body.
Officials say the suspects in Casilla's death have not been caught.
The group held balloons as they remembered the impact Casilla, also known as Nunu, had on his community.
