Councilman Jumaane Williams accused NYPD chief Ray Kelly of belittling Monday's riot.

BROOKLYN - Tensions are climbing between a Brooklyn councilman and the NYPD chief following the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old.

Things became heated Tuesday when Police Commissioner Ray Kelly appeared in East Flatbush. Councilman Jumaane Williams criticized Kelly for belittling Monday's riot and demanded better police relations with the community.

Willliams also invited Kelly to walk through his district, but the commissioner declined, saying it was a photo-op.

Kimani Gray was fatally shot by two plainclothes officers after allegedly pointing a loaded gun at them over the weekend.
