EAST FLATBUSH - Family and supporters of Kimani Gray met with the Brooklyn district attorney today to demand an independent investigation into the 16-year-old's fatal shooting by police.

Councilman Charles Barron says there are witnesses and video that disprove police reports that Gray pulled a gun on two officers prior to his shooting in East Flatbush.

"Nobody corroborates," said Barron, flanked by Gray's mother during a news conference. "He was not on a suicide mission."

Nearly 50 people were arrested last Wednesday after a vigil turned into a protest at the 67th Precinct.

The district attorney’s office did not comment after the meeting.
