Kimani Gray

Date of Incident: 
Saturday, March 9, 2013

East Flatbush, Brooklyn: Kimani Gray, a 16-year-old Black youth, was shot seven times by NYPD Sergeant Mourad Mourad and Officer Jovaniel Cordova. Several of these shots entered his back as he lay on the ground. The two officers involved in the killing had been named in a total of five federal civil rights lawsuit, which cost the city $215,000 in settlements. The NYPD claims that Kimani had a gun, but numerous witnesses say otherwise. The NYPD has also tried to justify Kimani's killing by spreading rumors about gang involvement, but his family denies this and some of his teachers have come out in his defense, saying he was a good child and student with promises of a great future. In Aug. 2014, Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson announced he had closed his investigation into the case and would not be convening a grand jury to consider charges against the officers who killed Kimani. Kimani’s mother, Carol Gray, was not informed directly and only learned this through the news. Carol Gray continues to demand justice for Kimani and others who have lost their lives to police violence.
