During Zone 5 Day in the community, a plaque was presented to Cmdr. Timothy O’Connor.
It was the community’s way of thanking O’Connor for supporting efforts to bring the May 2013 murder of 15-month-old Marcus White to the community’s attention.
It’s been six months since an infant was shot and killed in the East Hills.
A vigil was held tonight for a toddler who was shot and killed when someone opened fire at a crowded picnic in East Hills earlier this week.
Marcus White was a happy 19-month-old baby, who was loved by everyone. However, last night, three gunmen opened fire at the picnic he was at and he was killed.
