Basketball tournament held in honor of teen fatally shot 2 years ago

MILL BASIN -

Loved ones came together to honor Justin Hackley with the third annual Forever Justo Basketball Tournament.

The teen was fatally shot in Flatbush two years ago, and family members have tried to keep his memory alive through the tournament, as basketball was his favorite sport.

Hackley's mother also gives away two $500 scholarships in his name.

In 2017, police identified two suspects in Hackley's shooting death, brothers Rasheed and Dean Boland, who are still at large.

Friends and family say that by holding events in Hackley's honor, they're hoping to spread a message of anti-gun violence, but still want justice for Hackley.

Anyone with information is asked to call NYPD Crime Stoppers.
