The family of a New Orleans teen shot and killed last month is honoring his memory in a unique way.
Matthews’ body was dressed in a Kyrie Irving Boston Celtics jersey and Celtics socks. He was posed to hold a video game controller while sitting next to some of his favorite food, photos showed.
On June 25, New Orleans police received a call that a person was “down” and found Matthews’ body with a gunshot wound to the head, the Times-Picayune reported.
Matthews had been walking his dog when shot and was also robbed of his cellphone, his aunt told the newspaper.
Police have not arrested a suspect.
The teen will reportedly be buried on Tuesday.
