There was an emotional vigil Monday night to remember a teenager who was shot and killed by police in the Bronx.

Supporters of 18-year-old Ramarley Graham gathered in the Wakefield section outside his home.

They then marched to the 47th precinct where the officer who shot Graham works.

Graham, a drug suspect, was being chased last week.

An officer followed him into his home and shot him once in the bathroom, apparently thinking he had a gun.
