Protests In Brooklyn After Police Kill 16-Year Old Boy

Around 100 people took to the streets of Brooklyn Monday night to protest the death of 16-year-old Kimani Gray, who was shot dead by the New York City Policy over the weekend. Police maintain that Gray pointed a gun at the officers prior to the shooting, but several witnesses dispute their account.

The demonstration, which started as a vigil, briefly turned violent when some protesters began “throwing bottles and rocks” at a police station. CBS New York reported that a worker at a local Rite Aid was assaulted. But “there were no reports of arrests or injuries.”


New York City Councilman Jumaane D. Williams was on the scene, live-tweeting the protest.
