The 7th Precinct just released video surveillance showing four persons of interest in the shooting death of Raphael Ward on Columbia Street last Friday. The sixteen-year-old was reportedly shot near the corner of Rivington before stumbling into the Tearedhan bodega with a bullet wound to the chest. He died shortly thereafter.

While mainstream media maintains the motive was related to a $600 Marmot jacket, police claim otherwise. We’re also hearing rumors that it might have been a rival group from the nearby Campos Plaza. Guess we’ll need to wait until the four perps are caught…

DNAinfo learns that the wake is tomorrow at Provenzano Lanza Funeral Home in the East Village. Funeral service will be held at Our Lady of Sorrows Church on Thursday morning before his burial at Rosehill Cemetery.
