Hundreds gathering at a wake in the Bronx for Ramarley Graham Friday night, his funeral will be held Saturday.

The unarmed 18-year-old was shot and killed by police in his family's bathroom in front of his grandmother and 6-year-old brother.

Protestors stopped traffic as they marched up White Plains Road and headed for the NYPD's 47th Precinct.

It was another show of outrage two weeks after the police shooting of Remarley Graham.

The protest Friday night began in front of the church where the Graham family held a wake for their son.

A steady flow of mourners packed the Bronx Church.

Just over two weeks ago, the 18-year-old was shot and killed in the bathroom of his home by a NYPD officer.

The officer was part of a narcotics unit.

Police say Graham was dumping marijuana down the toilet but was unarmed.

The shooting sparked outrage in the Bronx and across the city.

The District Attorney is investigating.

Supporters of Graham have doubts justice will swing their way.

On Friday night they wore pins on their coats to keep Remarley Graham close to their hearts.
