NEW YORK — Activist and MSNBC Politicsnation host Rev. Al Sharpton continues to advocate for victims of police brutality by taking up the case of 56-year-old Denise Gay.

Gay, who was sitting outside of her Brooklyn home last weekend, was shot and killed by a stray bullet during a shootout between police and two men.

Police shot more than 70 bullets during the shootout, and the bullet that killed Gay was said to have come from a Glock model gun that police use.

The New York Daily News reports:

“There was a crime they were responding to,” Sharpton said of the police. “But to those who act thuggish in our community – with your barbaric disregard for our lives – you make us vulnerable, too. You put us in a position we should never be in.”

Joined on the stage of the National Action Network headquarters by the dead woman’s brother, Les Gay, Sharpton also questioned police conduct and training in the wake of the 70-plus shot fusillade that killed the woman on Monday night.

“What has disturbed me about this case is the number of bullets and the mystery gun,” he said.
