The mother of a teenage boy who was gunned down in San Francisco’s North of Panhandle neighborhood seven years ago today will be handing out fliers in the area to try to gather new leads in the case.

Aubrey Abrakasa, 17, was fatally shot at about 3:15 p.m. on Aug. 14, 2006, at Grove and Baker streets.

Abrakasa played high school basketball and was about to start his senior year at Raoul Wallenberg Traditional High School when he was killed.

His mother, Paulette Brown, will be in the area of Grove and Baker streets at 3 p.m. today along with members of the Police Department’s homicide detail to hand out information about the case in the hopes of developing information that will lead to an arrest.

The mayor’s office has authorized a reward of up to $250,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.

Anyone with information about Abrakasa’s death is asked to call the homicide detail at (415) 553-1145.

People wishing to remain anonymous can call the tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
