Cops kill teen gunman is one top news story making headlines this weekend, as the NY Post reported this Sunday, March 10, that undercover police officers shot and killed a Brooklyn teen this Saturday night after the boy pointed a gun at an official.
Under the headlines, “Cops kill teen gunman, shot dead in Brooklyn”, sources report that Kimani Gray, 16, was shot in the stomach and again in the leg after he pulled out a .38-caliber revolver on officers, police reported this morning.
The two officers that were undercover on the scene approached several teens after the group was “acting in a suspicious manner” near Snyder Street around 11:30 p.m., said the report.
Kimani Gray was hurried to an ambulance after the fatal shooting, but was unable to be revived and died before arrival to the hospital.
The cops later found that there were four bullets in the cylinder of the teen’s gun. When the two police officers made it to the corner, the teen was standing with his friends. As they opened fire, one of Gray’s friends alleged the slain teen said:
“Stop! I’m not running!”
Neighbors were on scene to confirm gunfire followed, and after Gray was shot, he began to scream, said eyewitnesses. One witness noted that Kimani did pull a gun on the officers.
The other teens in the group would not answer what led the police to open fire in the shooting.
