Rev. Al Sharpton called on mourners at the funeral of a Brooklyn mom who was killed by a stray bullet as cops waged a gun battle with an ex-con to “stop the shooting.”
“Somehow you must reach inside you and stand up for what’s right,” Sharpton told mourners at Denise Gay’s funeral Saturday. “Whatever the results of the investigation, there’s no doubt that you must stop the shooting.”
Gay, 56, was killed Sept. 5 around 9 p.m. on the stoop of her Brooklyn home. Cops had converged on the block after 32-year-old Leroy Webster killed another neighbor, 29-year-old Eusi Johnson. Gay was hit while cops were locked in a shootout with Webster.
