EAST NEW YORK -

A Brooklyn mother asked the East New York community Saturday to help find the suspects who shot and killed her son last year. 

Clayton Hemmingway Jr., 16, was shot multiple times outside the Linden Houses on November 4 after police say he got into an argument with two men. 

"He was very talented with that ball and they stole his dreams over a basketball game,” said his mother, Dionne Boyd. 

Family and friends marched through their neighborhood in East New York to demand a stop to the violence in the community. 

So far, detectives have not made any arrests and are offering a $2,500 dollar reward for any information.
