Community to gather and remember 13-year-old


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - People in the Buffalo community will soon gather to remember a 13-year-old boy, who was murdered. They are planning a memorial for Ameer Al Shammari on Saturday. Organizers have not released details yet.

Police say another 13-year-old boy named Jean Sanchez murdered Ameer, possibly over a cell phone. Someone found Ameer’s body in the old Tee to Green Golf Park off Amherst Street last Saturday.

Ameer and his family came to this country more than a year ago from Iraq.

Ameer is being remembered as a friendly, communicative child, whose academic achievements began soaring after winter break. School officials say the teen had been showing artistic talent while growing leaps and bounds in mastering math skills.
