    A family member of 28-year-old Akai Gurley, an unarmed man shot and killed by a rookie police officer in a public housing stairwell, is reportedly speaking out against Al Sharpton and accusing the TV host of exploiting the death.

    “Al Sharpton came in, put his name on the situation, but has not even made one single call to the parents to Akai,” Hertenceia Peterson, Gurley’s aunt, told TMZ.

    Peterson, who claimed to be speaking for Gurley’s mom as well, said Sharpton only appears interested in using the tragedy for “money and political gain.”

    The aunt also said Sharpton is not welcome at the funeral or Gurley’s wake on Friday night, even though the activist recently said he plans to deliver a eulogy.
