16-year-old who was shot dead by NYPD

plainclothes cops

Different accounts: Kimani Gray’s sister said that her brother had more ‘common sense’ than to point a loaded gun at NYPD officers The unnamed NYPD officer told the Daily News that they saw teens jumping on cars and throwing bottles at officers. Gray, 16, was shot eleven times after police said he pulled out a .357 revolver in East Flatbush, Brooklyn over the weekend. Police say they came across a group of young men on Saturday evening and saw Gray acting suspiciously, walking away from his friends when he saw the officers approach. Officers say the 16-year old began to adjust his waistband and started to act suspiciously. Gray then turned around and pointed a .357 caliber gun at them, according to police accounts. When the two plainclothes officers saw the weapon they responded by opening fire. The teen was rushed to Kings County Hospital but he later died. However, witnesses to the shooting say that the NYPD’s account is wrong. Gray’s older sister, Mahnefah Gray, 19, told the New York Times that one of the witnesses of the shooting told her that her brother was only fixing his belt. She added that her brother had too much ‘common sense’ to point a loaded gun at an officer, and doubted that he was even carrying a gun at all. A woman who lives across the street from the scene of the shooting told the Times that Gray was calling out: ‘Please don’t let me die!’ and said the officers yelled back: ‘Stay down, or we’ll shoot you again.’ Grey lived in nearby Crown Heights, but had grown up in East Flatbush and returned there to visit friends. His older brother, Jamar, was killed in a car accident two years ago. Weapon: The NYPD released this image of the gun recovered from the scene of the shooting Shooting: Two plainclothes police officers fatally shot a 16- year-old in Brooklyn last night, after the teen allegedly pulled a loaded gun on them Investigation: The police have said the revolver that Gray brandished (red box) was loaded According to witnesses, when the two cops arrived on the scene in an unmarked car, Gray was part of a group of six teenagers standing by the side of the road. One of Gray’s friends, Devonte Brown told the New York Post: ‘As the cops opened fire, he was screaming, ‘Stop! I’m not running!’ His friends have not explained exactly what caused the police officers to shoot. Police say Gray’s gun was loaded with four bullets but have not yet determined whether the teenager fired his weapon. Gray had been in trouble with the law before, having been arrested three times since October and had previously been charged with grand larceny and inciting a riot.
