The family of stray-bullet-slain baby Davell Gardner had him funeralized on Monday, July 27, at Tabernacle Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in Brooklyn.
In a heartbreaking service, Rev. Al Sharpton eulogized the one-year-old. This lovely baby who had not lived his life, was killed in Bed Stuy on July 12, as he sat in his stroller at a family cookout. Three men were also shot, but survived. The NYPD have named and held Deshawn Austin as a person of interest, but as of press time a named killer has not be apprehended. The police said their investigation is ongoing.
The Gardner family attended a rally of support hosted at Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) Harlem headquarters on Saturday, July 25, 2020.
NAN also fed over 1,200 families at their145th Street Harlem headquarters on that Saturday.
