Interview With Henderson Clarke, Brother of Kamal Flowers

Exclusive interview with Clarke after hearing Grand Jury decision not to charge officer who killed his brother

Black Westchester caught up with Henderson Clarke the brother of Kamal Flowers who was killed after a traffic stop in New Rochelle turned into a deadly confrontation with a gun Friday, June 5, 2020. During the traffic stop, Flowers took off and New Rochelle Police Officer Alec McKenna chased after him before shooting and killing the 24-year-old after Flowers pointed a gun at the officer.

We caught up to Henderson Clarke also known in the neighborhood as Hendo after he received the news that the Grand Jury decided not to charge McKenna who was involved in the death of his brother. This comes after State Attorney General Letitia James declining to investigate in July.

Check out this exclusive interview. The wifi is a little spotting and audio goes in an out a few times but you can still hear the pain of another family member of a Black Man killed at the hands of law enforcement.

Weighing an intentional murder charge, the grand jury found McKenna did not use excessive force. “After deliberating on the evidence presented in this matter, the grand jury found no reasonable cause to vote an indictment. I would like to thank the citizens of this county who comprised of the grand jury for their service and effort they devoted to this investigation,” says Westchester District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, who just lost his bid for re-election to Mimi Rocah.

We reached out to the New Rochelle Police Department and are still awaiting a statement. We are told they may be holding their own press conference later in the day.
