Bronx Cab Driver Shot 7 or 9 Times Testifies In Robbery Trial With Daughter in SDNY Gallery

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 16 –  Back in March 2018 then US Attorney Geoffrey Berman announced that "on March 17, 2018, Mario Powell called a livery cab in the Bronx then threatened the driver with a gun and demanded cash.  The driver handed over $23 in cash.  Powell exited the cab and then shot the driver seven times." 

  On May 16, 2023, Powell was on trial before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer. Inner City Press was there and covered it. 

 The driver Jeffrey Cisnero Camacho, who survived, was on the witness stand. He said he had been shot nine times, and still has two bullets in his leg. He said the two police officers who helped him, Jennifer and Sean, were "angels." He cried. 

 In the courtroom gallery, his relatives including one of his daughters listened. On the other side, apparently family members of the defendant.   The trial continues.

More detail, from Endless Sentences, on Substack here

The case is  US v. Powell, 18-cr-287 (Engelmayer)
