Family honors loved one by giving back
BATON ROUGE - The family of Corey Kaufman Sr. is honoring him by giving back to the community.
Kaufman was shot and killed in 2012 after a run in with a security guard at Club Sha La.
Since then, his family has been fighting for justice of what they say was an unnecessary death.
"He helped so many kids and it's so many kids that need help...you just need a positive role model in their life. And he was that. So, the family just decided to take over," said Kaufman's sister, Demetra Turner.
Loved ones of the slain Baton Rouge mentor had a back to school giveaway for kids in the community.
Louisiana Bringing About Change, the organization that Kaufman started in 2011 before he died, helped put on the event. They've been trying to bring awareness to the area to stop violent crimes.
Other organizations including PAVE ( Parents Against Violence Exposures) were also present to show their support for what Kaufman stood for.
