Murder victim's mother claims she's being targeted

BRIDGEPORT - The mother of a teen stabbed to death told News 12 Connecticut that she was recently targeted and shot at.

Tykwan Hunt was killed in 2008 by Amos Brown Jr., who was later found not guilty by reason of self defense.

Brown was shot to death earlier this month and his family believes it was gang retribution for Hunt's death.

Brown's father says all he asks for is peace for his son, justice for Hunt's mother, but most of all, for the circle of violence to stop, once and for all.RELATED STORIES:
