A friend of the family told the Post at the time that NeShawn was killed just two blocks from where his older brother was killed in 2012.
After NeShawn’s killing, the mom took to social media to seek help finding his killer.

Success Academy says NYC reneged on promise to give kids space
The city’s largest charter operator said Friday that officials promised to provide the kids space for next year but have since reneged.
According to the network, Mayor Bill de Blasio granted the students middle school space at I.S. Susan B. Anthony Academy in Hollis this year to afford time to find them a permanent home.
“In the intervening nine months, the city has not found a permanent location for them, and now City Hall is threatening to evict them from I.S. 238 leaving them without a place to learn,” Success Academy said.
The charter is pushing for the city to either renew the spot at I.S. 238 — which was never put to use due to the pandemic — or find an alternate location before documentation is required by March 12.
“Our parents have been waiting four long years to ensure that their children have a first-rate education — and yet the mayor has failed them once again,” said Success Academy CEO Eva Moskowitz in a statement.
The network said that the city has aimed to “sharply reduce” co-location approvals for charter schools and instead steered them to seek private space “at taxpayer expense.”Success Academy CEO Eva Moskowitz accused NYC of reneging on a promise to give Queens students space.Gabriella Bass
The DOE did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Success Academy operates 45 schools in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens and enrolls about 18,000 students.
The network has continually clashed with de Blasio during his tenure over a range of issues from school space to the use of athletic fields.
