Homicide detectives are continuing to investigate the shooting of Ahmir Ariel Lee, 22, who was killed at about 11 p.m. on Aug. 22, 2013 on Boylston Street near Copley Square, a spokesman for the Suffolk County district attorney’s office said.
Lee was a father of two who lived in Boston, according to an obituary. At a vigil in September, Lee’s mother told The Boston Globe that she felt as though her son’s case had been brushed aside and was not receiving adequate attention.
A police spokeswoman told The Globe that homicide detectives were seeking the public’s help in identifying Lee’s killer.
Immediately after the shooting, the police department reported that officers were looking for a black man wearing a blue Hawaiian-style shirt in connection with the shooting.
