Teen fatally shot by police in Brooklyn Saturday night after pointing gun at a pair of plain-clothes cops, NYPD says
Witnesses and friends of the felled teen identified him as Kimani ‘Kiki’ Gray, 16.

BY ERIK BADIA , VERA CHINESE AND BARRY PADDOCK / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Kimani Gray is shown in this undated photo released on Sunday, March 10. Gray was shot and killed by New York City police officers at 473 East 52 Street, in Brooklyn, when he pointed a .38 caliber revolver at them.

Police released a photo of what cops believe is the teen’s weapon.
A fun-loving 16-year-old boy was fatally shot by cops in Brooklyn late Saturday after the teen pointed a revolver at a pair of plain-clothes cops, police said.

Kimani “Kiki” Gray was standing in front of a home on E. 52nd St. near Tilden Ave. in East Flatbush with five other young men when he was spotted by two undercover cops just before 11:30 p.m.

Gray split from his pals when he noticed the cops, police said, and adjusted his waistband.

The cops, a 30-year-old sergeant and 26-year-old officer, got out and approached Gray, but he turned toward them, loaded .38-caliber revolver in hand, officials said.

Both cops squeezed off several rounds at Gray, who was hit multiple times in the torso and legs. He was rushed to nearby Kings County Hospital, where he died.

Gray’s mother, Carol Gray, rushed to the hospital after learning her son was shot, and was fainted and hospitalized herself after learning he died, relatives said.

“It’s going to drive the whole family crazy,” Gray’s cousin, Malike Vernon, 19, said of his death.

“He’s the type of person who is fun to be around. He’s the type who always gave you positive vibes.”

Vernon wished he knew his brother had a gun.

Cops shot a teen late Saturday after he drew a gun on them, police said.

“If I was there maybe I could have saved his life,” Vernon said. “I could have told him to get rid of that.”

Gray did not fire at the cops, who were both taken to New York Methodist Hospital in stable condition with trauma and tinnitus, police said.

Gray’s Rohm .38 caliber black revolver with four slugs in the cylinder was recovered at the scene, officials said.

A pair of brothers who said they were hanging out with Gray moments before the shooting told The Daily News they didn’t realize Gray was armed.

“The cops, they just jumped out of the car so fast,” said Devonte Brown, 16. “They started shooting him and he went down. He was bleeding, holding his side, screaming, ‘Stop, stop!’”

“We were just hanging out,” added Brown’s brother, Akeem Brown, 15. “We didn’t know he had a gun.”

Police sources said Gray has four prior arrests, including charges of grand larceny, possession of stolen property and inciting a riot.

Gray’s confrontation with cops was the second police-involved shooting of the day.

Earlier Saturday, cops shot 33-year-old ex-con Clinton James in the stomach after he rammed a detective with his car during a police stop on Staten Island, pointed a gun at cops, and led them on a wild chase that ended when he flipped his car, officials said. James survived and was hit with a slew of charges Sunday.

    The lady who is laughing at the end of the video needs to be ashamed. She’s laughing while (I’m guessing) her son/baby daddy/nephew/brother is making a video about Crips n Bloods and have some innocent child involved.

    These end up being the children that “accidentally” get shot by a stray bullet despite the parent(s) obvious involvement in the f—ery.

    Nuff of us went through that era in the 90s so now in 2013 we can’t teach our pickney nutten better to be gang banging on the corner.

    Worse now e-thuggery come into play. Everyone with a keyboard and wifi is a badman, we need to do better especially the women raising boys they want to be productive men.

  • Just Saying says:

    16 years old, 4 priors and owns a .38….. So this family that is going to go crazy because of his death, wasn’t aware that this type of behavior leads to jail or death.

  • Met says:

    As a parent how do you sit in your house while your child roams the street? Anything can happen and this is what happens when they roam the street with a weapon..tough and hard , sad yes but these children go through life being the same disruptive adults

  • Anonymous says:

    Met at the end of the day even if you guide your child the right way they still gonna be kids not saying he was right for walking with a gun but I’m quite sure his mom don’t know he have one. All I’m saying is why shoot 11 times when there was clearly no weapon bring drawn the cops are using that to save there asses but its all good unnu cyaan talk and bring up his past but it still nuh justified. If that was your kid it would be fine for the police to gun him down right? Smh

    He was coming from a baby shower met

  • Met says:

    Carol neva know him outa control?? Carol neva know him life woulda end two ways? Where was Carol before now??

  • Met says:

    If police neva kill him he would have killed someone else’s child…because when you are in possession of a gun you are looking to cause damage. Where was Carol when he was on the street being videoed by his friends running in on people? Of course she a go mourn the loss of her son and I do feel for her that she has lost a child she gave birth to but all like me nah demonstrate nor say one rerddddddddddddd in his defence of carrying a weapon at 16..he was looking for trouble and it so happened that the trouble was greater than him. Rip and may God comfort his mother at this time. She can talk this opportunity to teach other young men not to get lost in the streets

  • Anonymous says:

    What does this have to do with him being killed. He had a gun wrong choice. The cops didn’t know he had a gun until he was killed so either way gun or no gun he still would have died. Wrong choices at a young age but he didn’t deserve to be murdered!

  • Met says:

    Mi have two cousin whey mi grow wid..both choose that way to live and both died at 18..Never once any one a our family point finger or try defend the way they died nope………not because we nuh feel it less but how many times can u talk to a child and dem nuh listen…at some point u do give up even as a parent butttttttttt that nuh seh u a go whitewash dem..it is what it is and the pain is no less..but placing blame when this could have been prevented if he had made a better choice nuh mek the situation any better…at the back of her head Carol as u seh him mother name…knows he chose the wrong path

  • Met says:

    Him did a go murder smaddy wid dat same gun and him mother wudda feel better seh him murder smaddy else pickney dont? A so it go but at the end of the day..We are worth no more than the next person a dat nuff a dem dont know…gun at a young age is more than a wrong choice..joining the bloods was more than a wrong choice..being in the streets when you are at school age and have homework due is more than a wrong choice..mothers must take responsibility and a nuff jamaican mothers do this same shit then cry foul..it starts from the home.

  • LUNDUN says:

    my sentiments exactly met. well said

  • Met says:

    coming from a baby shower with a gun in his waist? Did he have an enemy in the street?

  • Met says:

    kids gonna be kids?? no dem neva need fi shoot him 11 times but God knows what may have gone through the officer’s mind..maybe him a try shoot him before him shoot him..ALSOOOOOOOOOO WE KNOW WHEN OUR CHILDREN HAVE CROSSED OVER…Jamaican mothers low up dem bwaay pickney pan di street and a nuh street dem live but dem low dem..bad things happen ..he was a street kid..see him fren upload video months ago wid dem a run in pan people and a talk bout stupid bloods shit as if dem nuh stupid fi join gang…what did joining the bloods do for him? As I said I am sorry he died but he choose the wrong path and got a sad punishment

  • Met says:

A time unno stop..grieve and done but di demonstration aldo mi know a nuff bloods mussy deh deha demonstrate but when a child feel like dem can pull a door of a home they are not paying rent for and go out and come in like a dem run tings………….. welll..maybe me a di only mad parent out there because that cannot happen and if it is attempted it will be once trust and believe that

  • good girl gone bad says:

    Is the same kid who got shot on one of the videos? If so which one? Dem nowadays pickney mek mi fraid fi grow up mi pickney dem in these ages. Because there is only so much u can do as a parent. U really have to keep serious watch over ur children and even that sometimes isnt enough. All those who ah run come cuss unnu fi know seh wi just comment on what is posted. Di article seh him point gun pon police (which has to be the stupidest thing to do) so ah dat we ah focus pon. If him get shot pon di street there must be witnesses who saw him point the gun or not point the gun, and would challenge the police officers statements. Sometimes unn mek excuse for ppl behavior too much becasue unnu know dem. I know the mother is hurting right now but wrong ah wrong. And if u feel seh whatever being said on hear is going to hurt her then make har know nuh come on or contact met respectively and request its removal. Until then cut the crap.

  • LUNDUN says:

    kill or be killed, di police neva did a go tek no check, if he was in school or at a after school job diss would not happen to him.

    mi no care weh nobody want seh, him a walk wid a gun wid intent to use. how wi know him neva kill nobody yet?

    yes he could have grown to change, but how many bodies would he have stacked b4 he changed?

  • good girl gone bad says:

  • Met says:

    Met how do u expand dat he pull a gun but yet all his enter wounds or entering from da back he had no time to pull no gun if he had pulled a gun his enter wounds would of been in his front areas instead all 11 hit him backway meaning his bk was turned to dem da police Neva have to shoot him cause he Neva had a gun n still have recovered it Dey made up da story to protect there self cause Dey are wrong it was no need to stop a group of kids coming from a baby shower n because one walk away tru he never wanted to answer Ur question u shot him both of dem Neva need to shoot him

  • Met says:

    Not necessarily he could have turned to run away ..If the police introduced himself to him and asked him a question he should have answered. When you act up with the police it makes them suspicious

  • Chocolate says:

    A lot of these mothers know their kids are in gangs and don’t do anything about it. When the kids steal and bring it home they accept it. If the kid terrorizes other kids, they turn a blind eye. In reference to the 11 shots, the first one could/may have killed him. Doesn’t make much difference. The amount of shots fired shouldn’t be the main factor here. The prime factor is how this kid wasn’t much of a kid in his actions was he? What did y’all expect was gonna happen when he started walking with a gun? It was either the police or rival gang members. If he had been shot up because he smacked a rival gang member what would have been y’all cry? To the mom, I understand your grief but this is nothing new. It has happened before and will happen again if we don’t wrest control of our youths from the streets

    I bet if it was an honor roll straight A student that this happened to no one would care and march and protest like they are now. Death is a sad thing but For all the folks taking up for this kid I wonder if u all know how stupid u sound. Ask urself what a f0000!g 16 year was doing with a gun. This kid got what was coming.he was a blood. A wanna be gangster playing tough. Sorry for his family’s loss but u get what u give. Call me when there is a real need to protest. Protest the killings of the Graham kid and the kid in Florida. Not this. Bury this kid in peace and learn from his mistakes.

    Mi love how met sum it up..mi hate all gang bangers, about four years ago on nostrant ave dem kill a guy from Africa which is a twin working youth goes to college on his way trying to find a western union to send money back home to his father because he had on red sneakers. Everybody that knew him was shock ,cause that youth never mix or mingle..The both brothers was love by everyone that knew dem..The crips gang claim that the new member had to kill someone to get in the gang. .I hate all gang bangers

  • Sheryl says:

    I FEEL LIKE IF THERE IS A LAW, IT SHOULD BE ENFORCED!
    1) HE WAS A MINOR WITH A GUN. OKAY! WHY NOT SEARCH AND ARREST THE KID AND LET HIM BE TRIED IN JUVENILE COURT!
    2) JUST BECAUSE HE HAD A GUN DOES NOT MEAN OFFICERS HAD TO SHOOT AND KILL HIM!
    THEY WERE INCHARGE OF THE SITUATION THAT HAD OCCURED. I AM SURE ANY TEENAGER THAT IS APPROACHED BY POLICE OFFICERS IN PLAIN CLOTHES POINTING A GUN, WILL NOT SHOOT BACK! HE COULD OF DROPPED THE WEAPON AND FACE THE CONSEQUENCES THAT FOLLOW!
    UNFORTUNATELY, IN THESE TIMES KILLING THE YOUNG BLACK YOUTHS FOR BEING GANG MEMBERS AND LOOKING SUSPICIOUS IS A COMMON THING FOR NYPD!
    THE FACT IS NYPD WAS SHOOTING TO KILL AND THEY DID JUST THAT! I AM STILL WAITING FOR PROOF THAT HIS WEAPON WAS FIRED.
    JUST BECAUSE YOU SEE SOMEONE WITH A GUN, AS AN OFFICER DOES NOT MEAN YOUR FIRST INTENT IS TO SHOOT TO KILL!

  • Sheryl says:

    NYPD IS KNOWN FOR CORRUPTION!!

    HERE IS A PIECE FRON AN ARTICLE ON But are the police any better? “The police shouldn’t be trusted any more than any other witness,” read an op-ed in the Times last month, “perhaps less so.” Just because a police officer says something is true doesn’t make it so, same as anyone else. None of us—pro- or anti-police—should pretend we can guess what happened here based on the assumptions we make about the world; hold your outrage for facts from fair reporting and full investigation. If you don’t believe me: police, in particular the NYPD, have an unfortunate record of lying—of officers perjuring themselves in courts of law, of spokespeople telling reporters things they know to be false.
