PATERSON - A Paterson family who lost their son two years ago is still looking for justice.
Gary Green, 34, was shot and killed in June 2012 on Father's Day weekend. Newly released video shows Green in a group of people involved in an altercation in front of Moya Bar and Liquors. One of the suspects had been escorted from the establishment by a group of patrons. Police still don't know if Green was among them. People can be seen running for their lives when a man opened fire at the corner of 10th Avenue and East 27th Street.
"They wanted to continue the initial argument that had happened earlier in the night," says Detective Edgar Taylor. "At which time they confronted the group."

Patsy Green is begging the community for answers in her son's death. "We want someone to come forward and speak up if they know anything - just help us out."
Green, a father of four, had moved to East Orange, but had come back to Paterson to celebrate Father's Day. His mother remembers his last words to her. "He said, 'OK mom and dad, I'll see you later. I love you.'"
Police are looking for three suspects who returned to the corner in a Kia Sol. Two of the suspects are seen getting into the Kia less than a minute after the shooting. Green was hospitalized for days before succumbing to his injuries.
Paterson police are offering up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest.
Police say security cameras inside the establishment were not working at the time of the dispute that sparked the shooting
