Matthew Shaw was a motivated young man who was loved by many. His life was tragically cut short on July 4, 2012 just before midnight. Matthew was visiting home briefly in-between graduating from Le Moyne College in Syracuse with his Bachelors of Science degree in Business Administration and Finance, and starting his Master’s at SUNY Albany University for economics. While stepping out with a couple of friends to go to the store, he was fatally shot in the chest at 112 East 128th Street in front of AK Houses. There have been no arrests made in connection to the shooting.
Matthew’s wake will be held tomorrow, July 12, 2012, at the Unity Funeral Chapel (2352 Frederick Douglass Boulevard). Viewing hours are between 3 and 7 PM which will be immediately followed by the service at 7 PM.
