BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

EDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 18 – There's been a 30-minute jury guilty verdict in the first criminal trial since March in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

 Alonzo Shipp was 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 live tweeted this (and now, audio exhibit here via EDNY)

Q: You were asked about an envelope vouchered by PO Garcia. Did it have the address... of the shell casings? 

A: [Inaudible]

Next witness: owner of R&R business, speaking louder.

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.


On verdict: Earlier today in the first federal criminal trial in the Eastern District of New York since the COVID-19 pandemic, a federal jury in Brooklyn returned a guilty verdict against Alonzo Shipp for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition in connection with a 2018 shooting in South Jamaica, Queens. The verdict followed a six-day trial before United States District Judge Rachel P. Kovner. When sentenced, Shipp faces up to 10 years’ imprisonment on each count.  Seth D. DuCharme, Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, John B. DeVito, Special Agent-in-Charge, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, New York Field Division (ATF), and Dermot F. Shea, Commissioner, New York City Police Department (NYPD), announced the verdict.  “A convicted felon armed with a gun is a fraught combination that oftentimes results in someone getting shot and that is precisely what happened in this case,” stated Acting United States Attorney DuCharme.
