NEW YORK (AP) — There has been a third night of protests in the New York City neighborhood where a teenage boy was shot and killed by police officers Saturday.
A disorderly group of young people heckled police officers, marched and some threw bottles following a candlelit vigil in Brooklyn Wednesday night for 16-year-old Kimani "Kiki" Gray.
Police say 18 arrests were made.
A spokesman for Gray's parents say they did not speak publicly at the vigil because of the crowd's violent reaction.
Wednesday's protest came the same day as the medical examiner's office ruled that Gray was hit seven times, and had wounds in both the front and back of his body.
Authorities say Gray was shot by two plainclothes police officers after he pointed a .38-caliber revolver at them.
