Kimani GrayTwo New York City police officers shot and killed a teenager in East Flatbush, Brooklyn just before midnight on March 10.

Authorities said 16-year-old Kimani Gray was standing on East 52nd Street with a group of African-American teenagers when the Brooklyn South Anti-Crime officers left an unmarked car and approached them. The officers said that Gray removed a .38-caliber revolver from his waistband and pointed it at them when they identified themselves as NYPD.

The cops shot the teen. He died at Kings County Hospital.

The police said that a loaded gun was recovered at the scene, but witnesses are telling a conflicting account.

A 19-year-old man who was with Gray at the time of the shooting told NBC 4 New York the officers never identified themselves as police.

“It all happened so fast. I didn’t even know they were officers. I didn’t hear them say a thing,” he said.

Another witness, Camille Johnson, alleges the teen fled because the police officers were intimidating the group.

“He was running for his life, telling the cops stop,” she told Pix11. “These cops is ridiculous. They really are, seriously, walking around, shooting little kids. They was just beating up somebody on 51st, now they came down here and shot somebody’s child.”

Both officers were treated for trauma at a local area hospital. Authorities are investigating the incident.

    It’s a matter of choice Dante. I have seen lawyers and doctors taking a long route to success. I have seen criminals aim at immediate gratification by becoming a “street fellows”. It is about choice you make. 3 arrests since October 2012 for Kimani… Where was he heading???? I feel sorry for his Mother and Father. Simething tells me that’s not what they wanted for their son. Enough said.

    Sure he may have turn your life around if he would have met you with a 38 revolver on the dark street dressed in a suit and have a fancy watch and wallet sticking out of your pocket. I feel sincerely sorry for the kid and wish our society would be different… but Karma is real is 100% true. You said it, not me. He was just 16 as you say and after 3 arrests still carried a 38. If cops planted a 38 next to this kid, after they shoot him, they should be publicly executed. That’s my stand…
