Outrage, tears at vigil for East Flatbush victim
Community members gathered Thursday night for an emotional vigil to honor a young man who was shot and killed Tuesday.
Police say Terrence Mahabir, 22, was gunned down by gang members who mistook him for someone else. Mahabir was killed on East 56th Street.
Tearful and outraged community members gathered at that spot to honor the young victim and demand justice. The group marched the 15 blocks to Mahabir's home on Albany Avenue in East Flatbush.
Relatives said Mahabir always looked after his family and wanted to be a police officer. During the vigil, distraught family members were consoled and carried off.
Police say they have not made any arrests in the case. A $1,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest.
