Anthony Rosario & Hilton Vega

Date of Incident: 
Thursday, January 12, 1995

Morris Heights, Bronx: Cousins Anthony and Hilton, both young Puerto Rican men (18 and 22-years-old, respectively), were killed by two NYPD detectives, Patrick Brosnan and James Crowe. Anthony and Hilton were shot a combined 14 times in the back while laying face down, with the cops standing right above them. No grand jury was ever convened and the officers involved were never charged. Margarita Rosario, Anthony's mother and Hilton's tia, continues to demand just for them and others who have lost their lives to police violence.
