BROOKLYN - A street sign to honor a girl who was murdered 10 years ago is missing in Brooklyn.

The sign, in memory of Tajmere Clark, was on the corner of Williams and Blake avenues.

Clark was just 3 years old when she was shot and killed inside an apartment at the Unity Plaza Houses in May 2006.

One year after her death, the street sign was renamed Tajmere Clark Way.
Her mother says that each year, she and her family would hold a memorial event in her daughter’s honor at the location. This year, she says she was horrified to find the street sign with her daughter’s name had been removed.

Kevin McCall, with the National Action Network, tells News 12 he reached out to the Department of Transportation and the mayor’s office about a month ago they told him they were going to replace the sign.
