Hundreds Mark 1st Anniversary of Ramarley Graham Killing; Family Sues NYPD

The family of an unarmed African-American teen shot dead by New York City police in his own home has filed a lawsuit one year after his killing. Ramarley Graham was shot at close range on February 2, 2012, after being chased by narcotics officers into his building. Police say Graham was trying to empty a small bag of marijuana into the toilet before he was killed.

On Saturday, hundreds of people marched to a Bronx police precinct to mark the first anniversary of Ramarley Graham’s death.
