Teens protest deadly police shooting at NYPD station

AP/NBC New York: Dozens of people marched in front of a Brooklyn police station Monday night to protest the deadly shooting of a 16-year-old boy over the weekend. Police estimated about 70 people marched to the station and threw bottles and rocks at the windows. No officers were injured and there were no arrests. The protesters appeared to be teenagers, according to witnesses.

Meanwhile, the two NYPD officers who fatally shot the teen — who they said pointed a gun at them — have been placed on administrative duty.
