R.I.P Ephraim Brown
Ephraim was gunned down last year on July 22, 2007. Only 11 years old when he took a bullet. He was sitting on a fence when he was caught in the crossfire of rival gangs in the Jane and Sheppard area. He died in hospital from a gunshot wound to the throat.
Today family and friends gathered to remember such a beautiful boy. Akiel Eubank, 21, and Gregory Sappleton, 21, have each been charged with first degree murder. Lorna Brown, Ephraim's mom wants to spread the word about her son's untimely death, appealing to others to stop committing violent acts. Still, she thinks legislation is the only way to stop crimes like this from happening again.
