The local ABC affiliate in New York City is reporting that a teenager in Brooklyn was gunned down by police after he pulled a gun on two officers in Brooklyn.

The report states that on Saturday, March 9, two plain-clothed officers in an unmarked car who are part of the Brooklyn South anti-crime unit accosted a group of young men on 52nd street. One of the teens then began acting suspicious and the officers approached him. According to police, the 16-year-old then pulled a .38 caliber revolver and pointed it at the officers, who opened fire using their weapons. The teen, identified in the ABC report as Kimani Gray, later died at Kings County Hospital.

The NYPD has not released the names of the officers involved in the shooting, and has said it is continuing to investigate the incident. Police stated that the gun the teen allegedly pointed at police, which was loaded, was recovered at the scene of the incident, but it is unclear whether the teen fired it at the officers.
