Murdered Brooklyn Teen Memorialized in Clinton Hill

Candles and hand-written notes have been gathered together on Fulton Street to remember Dennis Hamer, 18.


Countless candles, bottles of alcohol and hand-written notes have been gathered together near on Fulton Street near Washington Avenue to remember a murdered Brooklyn teen. 

The memorial is for Dennis Hamer, an 18-year-old from Crown Heights who was shot and killed during the early hours of Feb. 20 in Canarsie. 

At approximately 6:16 a.m., police found Hamer bleeding from a single gunshot wound to his head at Flatlands Avenue and East 108th Street, where EMS pronounced him dead on the scene. 

Though not from the immediate area, it's clear that Hamer made an impact on Clinton Hill, as dozens of thoughts and prayers reading "Rest in Peace," "R.I.P" and "You will be missed D-Block" have been scrawled across 969 Fulton St.

So far, there have been no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.
