Kimani Gray Shot Seven Times By Police + Family Holds 2nd Vigil In Brooklyn
Autopsy report shows Gray shot once in the rear left shoulder, twice in his back thighs, twice in the front thighs, once in his left side and once in his lower left forearm.
Tuesday night, around 150 people gathered for a peaceful march down to the 67th Precinct in Brooklyn after the parents of 16-year-old Kimani Gray urged for no further violent protests.
Kimani was shot dead by undercoverpolice officers earlier this week, after they said he pointed a gun in their direction.
But the community isn’t buying that explanation.
Tishana King of 477 East 52nd Street said she witnessed the shooting of Kimani Gray in front of 466 East 52nd Street on Sunday from her third floor window and she says she saw no gun.
The peaceful gatherers carried signs in Kimani’s honor and pleaded with the department to look into the incident. So far, the NYPD has not released the names of the officers or announced if they would be apprehended.
