Large Riot Breaks Out In Brooklyn During Vigil For Teen Shot 11 Times By Police

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Police intervened when more than a hundred people joined in a candlelit vigil in the East Flatbush neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York, where 16-year-old Kimani Gray was shot 11 times by police on Saturday, according to RussiaToday

Brooklynites on Twitter reported that police followed the march and searched apartment buildings in the neighborhood without warrants, looking for children who had been seen throwing bottles at police from neighborhood rooftops.

March participants chanted “NYPD KKK how many kids will you kill today,” people report from the scene.

“I’m in the middle of the riot action at Church and Snyder in my district. Right now, things are tense,” New York City Councilman Jumaane D. Williams, who represents the area, said on Twitter.

Sixteen-year-old Kimani Gray was shot and killed on Saturday night after, police say, pointing a gun at approaching cops.

According to the officers involved in the shooting, the teenager adjusted his belt “suspiciously,” and after they exited their vehicle to investigate, he pointed a .357 caliber revolver at them. Both officers fired at the suspect, hitting Gray eleven times in his torso and legs.

Witnesses say Gray, who was running for his life when he was shot, did not have a gun. “Stay down, or we’ll shoot you again,” police said once Gray had been hit, according to The New York Times.

After the shooting Gray was rushed to a hospital but was declared dead on arrival.

      Well, did the 16 yr. old have a gun? It’s crazy what’s happening to society. The relationship between black youth and the police is unfortunate. But, it’s more the fault of the progressive/liberal/socialist idealogy, than some notion that cops are racist and black youth are just punks. THe quicker people take their lives back and reject the democrats the quicker these things won’t happen.

        It’s always somebody Else’s fault never the communists police.

      whites protest when gathered, blacks do riot, thats probably why they called it a riot.

      see what happened in Chicago recently? how about in Jacksonville a few months ago? and the flash mobs in NY?

      ALL BLACK and rioting.

      it does need to be said, because MSM just says “teenagers.” when really they were all BLACK teens.
