"NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Following an ugly night in Brooklyn
in which bottles and fruit were thrown, bus windows were broken and a
pharmacy was ransacked, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly detailed Tuesday
what he believes took place a day earlier.
While Monday night’s violence occurred in the midst of a march
protesting a weekend police shooting in East Flatbush, Kelly said it
wasn’t a riot that broke out, but rather actions perpetrated by a
disorderly group that splintered off from the crowd."
The protest itself was in response to the police-involved shooting Saturday of 16-year-old Kimani Gray. Kelly said preliminarily, it appears the police shooting was within NYPD guidelines.
