BROOKLYN - A funeral was held this morning for 27-year-old Shawn Williams, who was shot multiple times on Nostrand Avenue last week.
Williams' family says he was trying to break up a fight when he was shot and killed. His family says he was the kind of person who liked to make peace.
The shooting happened on the same day as the NYPD's annual National Night Out Against Crime event.
Following the shooting, Councilwoman Letitia James said anti-violence groups need more financial support.
