A 16-year-old boy shot by police in Brooklyn  two months ago lay mortally wounded on the ground for 15 minutes before  getting medical attention, according to the teen’s family.

The parents of Kimani  Gray are expected to file a notice of claim Wednesday, informing the  city of their intent to file a wrongful-death lawsuit that alleges police used  excessive force in the March 9 shooting.

Family lawyer Kenneth Montgomery said he can prove NYPD cops  left Gray to die in East Flatbush.

“We have a videotape that shows all these police personnel who pretty much  militarized the block,” he said. “And this young man is on the pavement,  perceived not to be getting any medical attention for up to 15 minutes.”
