Brooklyn teen dies in police involved shooting

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Police say two officers shot and killed a teenager after he pointed a gun at them in Brooklyn on Saturday night. 

Officers arrived to 473 East 52nd Street in Flatbush around 11:30 p.m. and one teen separated himself from a group. 

According to police, 16-year-old Kimani Gray adjusted his waistband in a suspicious way as officers got out of their unmarked car. Authorities say Gray then turned on the officers and pointed a .38 caliber gun at them. 

The officers fired shots at Gray.  He was taken to Kings County Hospital where he was pronounced dead. 

Police recovered a loaded .38 caliber at the scene. The officers were taken to Methodist Hospital for examinations.  

This was the second of two police-involved shootings Saturday. NYPD officers also shot a man on Staten Island. 

Authorities say, in that incident, plainclothes officers approached a car on North Gannon Avenue after they received a tip that a driver was in possession of a gun.      

Police say that 33-year-old Clinton James pinned an officer with his car when he attempted to flee the scene. James was seen reaching for a weapon and an officer shot him in the torso, according to police. 

James was taken by EMS to Richmond University Medical Center.   Police found a loaded .44 caliber gun from his vehicle.  

Two detectives and one officer were also taken to Richmond University Medical Center for trauma for non-life threatening injuries.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?
