Delrawn Small honored with conaming of street where he was killed by cop


The section of Bradford Street between Atlantic and Liberty avenues in East New York was formally co-named over the weekend in honor of Delrawn Small, a 37-year-old Brooklynite who was fatally shot by a New York City police officer on that block in 2016.

Family members and friends of Small joined elected officials and advocates Saturday to unveil the new sign designating the section as Delrawn Small Way.

“I’m beyond grateful to the residents of Bradford Street for being so gracious and welcoming Delrawn’s life and legacy to live on this street,” his sister Victoria Davis said in a statement. “They were all so sweet and never forgot what happened to Delrawn.”
