A family is in mourning as they remember the life of 40-year-old Billy Hippolyte, who was killed in a shooting last Tuesday.
Family and close friends gathered at Guarino Funeral Home to celebrate his life and pay their respects.
The shooting took place last Tuesday at 3 p.m. Hippolyte was shot three times in his torso at the intersection of 83rd Street and Flatlands Avenue. His family says they're fighting to bring justice.
"We want justice for a brother who was shot in broad daylight, in the neighborhood where all his friends and family lived," said Ruth Hippolyte, the victim's sister.
