No charges will be filed against the NYPD in the death of unarmed teenager Kimani Gray last year in Flatbush
It was confirmed yesterday by District Attorney Kenneth Thompson that charges will not be filed in the shooting death of 16 year old Kimani Gray last year on March 9th in Brooklyn by the NYPD.
Last year, an investigation was launched when then Ofc. Mourad Mourad and Jovaniel Cordova shot Gray seven times, of which three bullet holes in his back, killing him. The officers were initially placed on administrative duty during the investigation, however, since the incident Officer Mourad Mourad was promoted to sergeant and has even reeceived a service award.
This tragic news comes on the heels of the death of Eric Garner, further widening the gap between the cops and the community.
Kimani’s mother, Carol Gray, intends to continue to fight for justice for her son with a federal lawsuit against the NYPD in her sights.
