Vigil for Brooklyn teen killed by cops turns into a full-scale riot3/12/2013
There are peaceful vigils to honor the dead, and then there's what happened in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Monday night. A ceremony to mourn a teen killed Saturday by cops turned into a riot: An angry mob threw bottles and trash cans at police, ransacked stores, smashed car and bus windows, and assaulted bystanders. Police say the 16-year-old whose death sparked the chaos in the East Flatbush neighborhood, Kimani "Kiki" Gray, was a member of the Bloods street gang and pulled a gun on cops. However, Gray's family insists the teen didn't own a gun and had been adjusting his belt when he was shot. The crowd dispersed around midnight. According to one report, another vigil is planned for Tuesday night. [Source]
