Undercover cops fatally shot a teenager in Brooklyn last night after he pointed a loaded gun at an officer, police sources and witnesses said.
Kimani Gray, 16, was shot in the leg and stomach when he whipped out a .38-caliber revolver after adjusting the waistband on his pants, said cops.
The two undercover officers, driving a red umarked car, had approached the group of teens because they were acting suspiciously on East 52nd Street near Snyder Street in East Flatbush just before 11:30 p.m.

At least this time it didn’t take 41 shots.
Or anyone else who carries a gun and is serious about self defense.
The Post ran this? The title sounds very AP/liberal with the new use of the word gunman, which for most people indicates a politically motivated shooting, or some nutcase going on a spree. Notice how he’s got a prior of inciting a riot, which you can get for brandishing a gun on the street in a threatening manner.
I thought that was an RG from the pic in the article, you nailed it. Junk German POS saturday night special, barely better than nothing.... Barely. ;)
Hey everyone, my original post was to poke at the idiot writer of the article. I guess he hit the, “I have already previewed or do not wish to preview this composition.” button before proof reading. Or like most journalist, he is ignorant about guns.
And for the dolt that thinks that his .02cents is worth more than mine, bugger you.
A .38 is different from a .357. Yes you can use 38 caliber bullets in a .357 but NOT the other way around. Talk about eating your own!
I fire my 200 grain cowboy action, lead round nose .454” bullets made for .45 Colt in my .45 ACP 1911 Remington rand. Very accurate. I do not like black powder cleanup And would not use BP or lead bullets in gas operates semi autos. I have a couple of 5 gallon buckets of lead, so that should last me. I won’t say how much. But I do have powder primers and jacketed bullets. At my age it should last me. I worry about my boys running out.
Why those racist JBTs!
Well, I can do dumber than that. One of my hobbies is shooting groundhogs, and one of my rifles is a Remington Model 700 chambered in .300 Win Mag with a muzzle brake—which reduces recoil but increases muzzle blast. Made the one-time mistake of touching a round off using the hood of my truck as a rest. The sound waves of course bounced off the windshield glass and about blew my left eardrum.
I guess that would depend on the size of the case. Black powder cartridges were effectively full when that cartridge was loaded.
So far my local gun shop has been able to supply my powder needs OK. I just bought 2 lbs. of 3031 and a lb. of Unique last week.
Brass has been a little tougher to get. Have been supplementing my on hand inventory since early January. Except for a few shotshell items I am in pretty good shape now. Will probably add a few more calibers to my reloading die collection. I don’t shoot exotics, but feel compelled to prepare a bit more than normal.
Until recently all I ever loaded was for my 221 fireball and for shotshells. Have loaded those for many years, since back in the 60’s and 70’s.
I decided in January to upgrade my reloading press and added most for what we already are shooting.
Until the ammo shortage, reloading did not make that much sense. I did not shoot enough rounds for it to be worth the setup and time cost.
Now, it is about having ammo, not cost.
Yup, it's hard to concieve the cops only fired a few rounds.
I beleive it’s a Colt Trooper MK-III .357 Magnum
Interchangable in only one direction. 357 doesn`t go in 38.
Not true. A .357 cartridge will slide right into a pistol marked .38 or .38 special and it will fire. The problem isn’t that the .357 cartridge won’t “go in” a .38 the problem is that a gun made for .38s or .38 specials is not made to handle the pressure. It might blow apart in your hand.
POTUS would be my guess, given the idiot voters we have now.
Who knows when that pictures was taken. The msm likes playing with pictures. They showed younger pictures of St. Skittles and Lanza. They showed Zimmerman at a heavier weight and gave the usurper a buff body and different colored clothes. They lighten and darkened OJ's, the usurper's and Zimmerman's skin color depending on the slant of the story. It's all a game with them.
Wonder where he stole the gun from?
If obozo had a son......
So this kid and Trayvon used to hang together.
an expiring rapper...his shelf life was up. According to reincarnation he’ll come back as a cockroach or a bedbug
