In EDNY Trial Shipp Is Charged As Felon in Possession After Jamaica Queens Shooting

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

EDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 12 – In its first criminal jury trial since the COVID pandemic hit in March, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York has begun a trial of Alonzo Shipp, charged with being a felon in possession  of gun and ammo in connection with shooting a victim in Jamaica, Queens on July 20, 2018.  

Inner City Press, covering the EDNY like SDNY, live tweeted it, here:

Witness is the owner of R&R business.

Q: This photo, is that where the dumpster is when you leave it out overnight? A: No.

  Q:  On July 20, 2018, was anyone with you at work?

 A: Yes, my nephew. We found a gun. Q: Did you know whose gun it was or how it got there? A: No. And we did not touch it.

 AUSA: No further questions. Cross: You don't know what happened from 6 pm July 19 and 8 am July 20, right? A: Right.

Next witness: NYPD Detective Daniel Gallagher of the 113th Precinct in Jamaica, Queens.

AUSA: Were you involved in investigating the shooting of Mr. Reginald Cook?

 Gallagher: Yes. I went to the hospital. I recovered 3 bullet fragments and vouchered them.

 Defense: I will cross examine after a side-bar.  

Jury is asked to go to the jury room so lawyers and Judge Rachel P. Kovner can gather together - consistent with social distancing - for a sidebar.

Now the jury is let go for the day - though they can pick up lunch in the jury room before heading out, if they want. Trial will continue - watch this site.
