NEW YORK (AP) - Two police officers who killed a 16-year-old boy on a New York City street have a history of being sued for alleged civil rights violations.
The Daily News reports that the city has paid $215,000 to settle three lawsuits against Sgt. Mourad Mourad and two against officer Jovaniel Cordova.
The officers were in Brooklyn's East Flatbush section March 9 when they tried to stop and question 16-year-old Kimani Gray on the street.
Police say the officers, who were not wearing uniforms, shot the teen after he pulled a gun.
The civil rights lawsuits were all by people who claimed they were illegally stopped and then roughed up.
A Law Department spokeswoman says the settlements were not an admission of wrongdoing.
Gray's killing prompted a week of protest marches in Brooklyn.
