BROOKLYN - The East Flatbush community came together once again for an Easter Sunday vigil in memory of slain teenager Kimani Gray.

The 16-year-old's loved ones gathered at Red Hills Road Restaurant on Church Avenue as neighbors talked about solutions to end violence between the NYPD and the community. Family and friends are also calling for an independent investigation into Gray's death.

The teen, who was known affectionately as "Kiki," was shot and killed by two plainclothes officers on March 9. It's now been just over a week since he was laid to rest.
