CANARSIE - Family and friends gathered Friday to say a final goodbye to the 27-year-old struck and killed by a police car in Canarsie two weeks ago.

Tamon Robinson was hit earlier this month at the Bayview Houses. Authorities say they responded to a call about someone stealing paving stones from the NYCHA complex and chased him until he was struck.

Robinson's family made a plea earlier this week for witnesses to come forward in the case.

The Kings County District Attorney's Office has launched an independent investigation into the incident.
