EAST FLATBUSH - Police say they had to break up a large crowd tonight during an East Flatbush protest.

Around 100 people were protesting the killing of 16-year-old Kimani Gray when they began throwing trash and bottles on the street.

Dozens of cops were called to break it up and Councilman Jumaane Williams ( D - 45th District) was there and tried to calm the crowd down.

Cops say Gray pulled a gun on two undercover cops late Saturday night. Police returned fire, killing the teen. The officers involved in the shooting were taken to the hospital for minor injuries.

Both officers involved are now on administrative duty while the investigation is under way.
