Justice for Akai Gurley at the Pink Houses in East NY, Dec. 27

The Gurley family led the march of more than 200 people throughout Brooklyn by the public housing development where 28-year-old Akai Gurley was murdered. His 2-year-old daughter, Akaila, was at the front of the protest. 

Gurley was shot by rookie NYPD officer Peter Liang on November 20. The officer said he accidentally discharged his weapon during a vertical patrol in a dark staircase after being startled by Gurley who was walking up with his girlfriend.
