Family of man slain in 2008 holds fundraiser to help find his killer

From Daily News reporter Julie Shaw:

The family of Matt Novak, a 24-year-old man fatally shot Sept. 28, 2008, by someone in a dark Chevy Impala, on Fairmount Avenue near 13th Street, will hold a fundraiser to help find the thugs who killed him.

About 6:55 p.m., after Puerto Rican Day Parade festivities, Novak flagged down the black or imperial blue Impala, with New Jersey tags, on 6th Street near Spring Garden after his friend’s car broke down. He got into the car, with three men inside, and a few minutes later, he was shot.
