Protesters have taken to the streets of Brooklyn, New York, to show outrage over the brutal police killing of a young suspect.
Protesters gathered in for a second night on Tuesday as tensions escalated over the death of 16-year-old Kimani Gray in East Flatbush on Saturday in a police shooting.
The teenager had been accused of brandishing a .38-caliber revolver at two undercover police agents, who then shot him 11 times.
“People gotta say, we’ve had enough of going to bed and waking up to another police killing,” said a protester.
Officials say there is no evidence that the officers are guilty of misconduct and also point at that Gray an arrest record including charges for theft.
Gray did not fire his handgun, which was recovered at the scene.
There have been several deadly shootings across the United States over the past few months, putting the issue of lax gun control laws back in the spotlight.
Every year, more than 30,000 people are shot and killed in the US.  Over 100,000 US citizens have signed an online petition to the White House, dubbed “We the People,” asking US President Barack Obama’s administration for a renewed national debate on gun control.
