"Sean Bell Way" street renaming proposal

The man shot and killed after cops say he tried to run them over following a night of partying at a strip club, could soon have a street named after him. "Sean Bell Way" could be the new name for a portion of Liverpool Street in the Jamaica section of Queens.

That's where Bell was killed, and his two friends wounded, during a hail of 50 police bullets 2 years ago.

A city council committee will vote Thursday on the proposed name change, along with 67 others.
