Months before his death, Young introduced legislation to name the northwest Atlanta park where his plaque will sit after Johnston, the 92-year-old woman who was killed by Atlanta police officers during an illegal drug raid nearly 13 years ago.
Construction on the park was completed in September. The park sits in the English Avenue neighborhood, a few blocks from where Johnston was killed.
