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.


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.
