Vigil Planned for Slain 14-Year-Old Bronx Honors Student
BAYCHESTER — A candlelight vigil is being held Monday night for the 14-year-old Baychester honors student who was shot to death in a park after playing tennis late last week, according to the boy's family.
A funeral has been scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 12 at 9 a.m., at the Gospel Assembly Church, where Kemar went to Sunday school.
"Everybody will be there," Brooks said of the funeral.
According to police sources, Kemar and two other boys were playing tennis on Friday night when it began to rain and the three ran for cover.
While waiting out the rain, shots rang out and Kemar's two friends ran away, police sources said.
A spokeswoman from the medical examiner's office confirmed Monday that the boy died of a gunshot wound to the head.
