drive-by shooting at Fulton Ferry Landing in October -- and numerous other incidents -- were explained by Brooklyn DA Ken Thompson yesterday.
The shootings were part of a spree by 18 alleged members of No Love City, a subset of the
violent Folk Nation street gang, who have been charged in a 76-count indictment with conspiracy to commit murder, weapons possession
and other charges for multiple shootings throughout Brooklyn.
Thompson, together with New York City
Police Commissioner William J. Bratton and Mayor Bill de Blasio, made the announcement.
In the DUMBO incident, Thompson said, "defendants Javanni Moise, Jean Fremont, Jarmel Blake and
others drove down to the DUMBO section of Brooklyn and engaged in a gun
battle with rival gang members. After the gun battle, a black Cadillac
was seen fleeing at a high rate of speed through Carroll Gardens. It was
abandoned by Prospect Park and found to have multiple bullet holes, as
well as Fremont’s fingerprints and Moise’s blood."
Two weapons were
discarded en route: a Glock 26 9mm had Moise’s DNA and matched shell
casings at DUMBO and in the car; a Smith & Wesson 9mm matched
Moise’s fingerprint on the magazine. Moise, whose DNA appeared in the
Cadillac, was taken to Kings County Medical Center.
