NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The mother of Akai Gurley‘s 2-year-old daughter went Wednesday to formally identify the body of the Brooklyn man shot dead by a police officer in a dark stairwell last week.
Kim Ballinger stood shivering in the icy rain outside the medical examiner’s office, WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported. Ballinger was accompanied by Kirsten John Foy of the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network.
Ballinger was too distraught to speak to reporters.
