Three men were indicted for a shooting earlier this month in Red Hook that left five people wounded, including a pregnant woman who miscarried.
Marquise Frederick, Quamari McAllister and Elijah Wells, all 19, from Brooklyn were named in a 20 count indictment that includes second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, first-degree attempted assault and other related charges.
“In light of the horrific shooting in Red Hook that caused a young woman to lose her baby, we’re determined to put these defendants away for as long as possible, said Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson.
The night of August 3rd at around 10:48 p.m., the three men pulled up in a green Ford Explorer outside 9A Dwight Street near Delavan Street in Red Hook, stepped out of the car and proceeded to shoot in the direction of the victims. They then jumped in the vehicle and fled.
A surveillance camera outside captured the incident and police were able to track the vehicle back to McAllister’s father.
Investigators revealed the shooting was likely in retaliation for a shooting the night before where a member of the “Gowanus Crew” or “Oww Oww” – a subset of the Bloods gang – was hit. The suspects are allegedly members of the gang.
All three suspects have been held without bail and if convicted can face up to 25 years in prison.
