Hate crime or Unfortunate event? The details of the shooting and killing of 16 year old Kimani Gray are still foggy. But the odds are not in the NYPD’s favor, who seem to have shot an innocent teenager.
According to Gawker:
Kimani Gray, the 16-year-old who was killed in Brooklyn on Saturday night by two plainclothes police officers, was shot seven times: four in the front, three in the back. An autopsy report from the Chief Medical Examiner didn’t say which bullets hit first, or which killed Gray; it’s unclear, therefore, whether he was shot while facing the officers—as they claim—and then turned, or was first shot while his back was turned to them.
Gray’s death has led to vigils in East Flatbush, the neighborhood in which he lived, and where a small “riot” broke out damaging local businesses. The two cops who shot Gray say he brandished a .38-caliber revolver at them, yet a witness says Gray was unarmed.
