A new community center in Queens pays tribute to Sean Bell, the man killed in a hail of police bullets hours before his wedding.

The Sean Elijah Bell Community Center on Sutphin Boulevard opened Saturday morning.

It will provide tutoring, General Educational Development and mentoring programs to local residents.

It's been nearly five years since Bell was shot by police outside a strip club in Jamaica during his bachelor party.

Three detectives were acquitted of manslaughter and reckless endangerment charges.
