Distraught relatives of a 16-year-old Brooklyn boy shot dead by cops claimed yesterday that the teenager didn’t own a gun and they’re “skeptical” about the cops’ version of how the incident went down.
“He got shot six times, and the police didn’t get shot once,” fumed great-aunt Brenda Nunez of the shooting of Kimani “Kiki” Gray of East Flatbush.

Of course he didn't own it, he probably stole it.
"If he did have a gun, I could say, Yo, get rid of that, son. Thats not the right thing to have right now.
What's this, a new litmus test for justifiable homicide?
He was just starting to turn his life around, He loved his Grandma.
Kids like this will kill you quicker than an older man.
How many 16 yo gang kids take their guns home to show to their Momma’s. Of course she didn’t know he owned a gun.
It was probably a stolen gun.Since no one in New York can own a gun.
The gun laws work don’t they?
Best line I've read in weeks!
He didn't own it because it was a probably a cops throw away weapon. Every cop I ever knew carried a through away weapon, maybe just a knife or small pistol, but turn the body over and drop it under the deadman and you now have self-defense and a justfiable shoot
ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) - A 43-year-old St. Petersburg man was shot by police Sunday night after he allegedly charged them while armed with a pair of scissors.
One more reason why you should not run with scissors.
They DID disarm him.
The teens rap sheet includes four prior arrests, including charges of grand larceny, possession of stolen property and inciting a riot, sources said.
To which of course his gandma would say "He's a good boy, he wouldn't do that"
His father could not be reached for comment. (probably because we don't have a clue who he is)
Let me guess. He was an aspiring rapper.
Become an expiring rapper.
This is a poorly written article. The cops say he pointed a gun at them. The family said he didn’t own a gun. Is anyone denying that he had a gun? Is there any real evidence? If he had a gun and pointed it at the cops, he should expect to be shot. If he was just adjusting his waistband and cops thought he was pulling a gun without seeing anything, they may have overreacted. This seems real simple to me — there was either a gun at the scene or there wasn’t. The story doesn’t say.
“Throw down” guns are how cops avoid having to “testalie”.
It is an ethical thing, dontcha see?
Question: How was the kid to know they were undercover cops when they werent in uniform and driving an unmarked car? He could have thought they were drug guys or other gang members. Just saying.
Sounds like it went just fine.....
I don’t own any guns either. I just let some live in my closet. Am I going to argue with a gun?
The idea of an urban youth with a gun is pretty far-fetched.
The caption below the picture of the gun says, “THE WEAPON: Police say Kimani Kiki Gray pulled this gun on them before cops killed him.” So yes, there was a gun at the scene.
He got shot six times, and the police didnt get shot once,
Yeah, not fair !!!
“One more reason why you should not run with scissors.”
ROTFLMAO (with no sharp objects)
Of course he didn’t “own” a gun. A 16 yo can’t own a gun in NYC.
Well, of course, the kin always know exactly what the teens in the family own and exactly what they’re doing at all times.
You’ve been watching too many grade B crime movies
What was the last time you ever heard anyone refer to a .357 revolver as a small pistol?
"He's probably been stealingsince he could crawl". Given the right surroundings and encouragement, I'll bet that that man could run our website as well as LAZAMATAZ. "
Really? In Nebraska?
You've been watching too many movies dude.
Looks like you got a promotion since then. So there's that. Congradulations.
the cops call these throw-away weapons “ham sandwiches”.
i do loe somehow this is wrong in the family’s eyes because none of the cops got shot. i am not a great fan of cops but to say it’s wrong because a suspect gets shot but can’t wing any of the officers before being taken down, is an indictment of the public school system that spawned this family of vermin.
yeah i’m swingin’ at everyone today...
Apparently, it’s quite common in certain groups to borrow a gun from a friend when you ‘need’ it, kinda like borrowing the neighbors saw.
FYI...... Arlo Givens died from being stabbed with scissors.
I saw it
LOL, We should demand that there is an equal distribution of bullets.
They should have taught him to dance......the double tap.
You've been watching too many movies dude
Feel free to never question authority or its motives or tactics. What i wrote is the truth. yes i did live in NE for a lot of years. also, WI MN IA CO, CA rural and cities. iIt holds true everywhere. try asking a few.They'll probably refer to it as their back up. wink wink
Dude you've been watching to much "Andy Griffith" and "Dragnet" times have changed
I have a BS in criminology but never really pursued a carrer in such because a hated the lying bastards i was in classes with. many, many cops, fulfilling requirements for advancement. Even 25 yrs ago, the atitude of us vs them made me sick. I did grow up with Andy and Barney. The “Protect and serve” on the side of the cars is just left over paint and decals they neeeded to use up. That philosophy has long been dead.
Well as long as they got it done in 10 shots or under like the libs want the rest of us to do. Wait a minute they didn’t miss more than 4 times did they?
Of course there are dishonest cops, just like there are dishonest doctors, politicans and Catholic priests. You made a common mistake when you chose to indict an entire profession with your "every cop I ever knew" observation.
I have cops in my family who have served in the Bronx and Brooklyn. My father was a member of the FBI. I can assure you none of these men carried a throw away weapon. And they did indeed choose a profession of personal sacrifice and threat because specifically because they wanted to serve the public. Questioning athority is fine. Talking out of your ass is not.
BTW, the papers are reporting today that Kimani 'Kiki' Gray was a member of the Bloods gang, and no one is denying that the gun was in his posession.
i don’t say every cop does it. but it is a common practice and in some areas it is more normal than not.
and i have cops in the family too.
and don’t say they never lie. they back each other up on false or half-truths all the time. cops are given the benefit of the doubt they don’t lie and it’s abused.
the most glaring examples are caught on citizens’ videotapes when they don’t know they’re being recorded. or they think their dashcam is off.
to sit there and believe it hardly ever happens is just as dumb as saying they all do it. it’s a real problem and it varies by department, and generally the bigger the department the bigger the problem.
