Aamir Griffin shooting: NYPD offers reward for help in finding who killed Queens teenager

Police are offering a $10,000 reward for help bringing innocent teen Aamir Griffin’s killers to justice.

The 14-year-old, known as “Buddy,” was shot and killed by a stray bullet while shooting hoops on a basketball court at Baisley Park Houses in South Jamaica shortly after 8 p.m. Oct. 26.

His death sent a wave of grief across the city as family and friends mourned the loss of the boy –– who was remembered as a promising athlete.

Anyone who provides anonymous information to CrimeStoppers is eligible for up to $2,500, and now an additional $7,500 is payable by the NYPD upon the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for the crime.

Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea — who’s set to take over as commissioner Dec. 1 — tweeted about the reward, “Up to 10k reward for info leading to arrest & conviction of person(s) who killed 14-year-old Aamir Griffin (below) an innocent bystander shot on 10/26 on a Queens basketball court.
