Charged With Shooting 13 Times in Bronx Project Allen Asks for 46 Months Now US Too

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 28 – Terrence Allen was arrested and charged with shooting a gun 13 times in the Melrose Houses in the South Bronx. In state court he was released on $50,000 bail.

Then the case was Federalized and he was arrested again.

 On October 30 Allen appeared by U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York new Magistrate Judge Stein Gary. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag court.

    The AUSA emphasized 13 shots, and Allen's arrest twice in the same silver Mercedes. The Federal Defender said he works two jobs on Long Island and could stay with his wife near the Williamsburg Bridge.  

Judge Stein took a break to mull it, then returned and said he had to detain Allen on danger grounds.

On November 20, District Judge Denise L. Cote to whom the case was assigned arraigned Allen and set a May 13, 2024 trial date. She then held a bail hearing. Allen's defender offered a condition of him being banned from The Bronx.  But on danger grounds, Judge Cote continued detention.

Jump cut to March 19, 2024, when Terrence Allen pled guilty to count 1.

On June 21, Allen's Federal Defender wrote it, for the sentencing now on July 10, asking for a sentence of 46 months. An explanation is provided: in the Melrose Houses, a group of 5 to 6 young men held a gun to his head. He writes, "At that point I let my anger supersede my intelligence." He fired the gun, not at anyone, but to "send a message that he would not let the young men in the building take advantage of him."

On June 28 the US Attorney's Office wrote in saying it "largely agrees," and also asking for 46 months on July 10.

The case is US v. Allen, 23-cr-588 (Cote)
