Basketball tournament held in honor of slain Raytown boys

Posted: Updated:

A Raytown community is promising never to forget the 2009 murder of two young brothers - there's a basketball tournament being held this weekend in their memory.

Amir Clemons, 10, and Gerard Clemons, 7, were slain along with their aunt and her boyfriend by an enraged former boyfriend. Both boys loved to play basketball. Amir played his last game on the night of March 16, 2009. Hours later, they were killed.

To honor their memory, family, friends and community hold the tournament annually on a court named for them. The hope is to inspire other kids to enjoy the sport.

The boys are still missed, especially their bright, beaming smiles.

The tournament will be this weekend at Raytown High School. The tournament begins at 6 p.m. Friday and will continue Saturday and Sunday.
