Kimani Gray’s mother calls for independent probe
The mother of the teen shot to death by two police officers this month is demanding an independent investigation into the shooting.
Carol Gray, mother of 16-year-old Kimani Gray, said Wednesday evening that she and her family are not pleased with the investigation and want an independent probe, The Daily News reported.
Kimani was shot by cops after he pointed a .38 caliber revolver at them, according to police reports. But Gray’s family and friends do not believe the teen had a gun.
Gray and her lawyer were joined by City Councilman Charles Barron outside the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office Wednesday evening.
No witnesses saw Kimani with a gun, Barron said. The councilman demanded the officers be indicted and convicted. The cops involved in the shooting had been sued in the past for civil rights violations.
