Shooting of Baby in The Bronx Resulted in 2 Arrests, Now Renewed Bid for Bail Set Nov 1

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 24 –  Two men were presented and detained in Manhattan Federal court on August 9, 2023 for a shooting of an 11-month-old baby in January 2022. The baby was in the courtroom - and so was Inner City Press. Thread:

OK - now presentment of AHMED ALTOREI & SAMUEL BAUTISTA after a street shooting on Jan 19, 2022, targeting a rival drug dealer but shot an 11-month-old baby in the face.  Courtroom filling.

Deputy: Mr Lazzaro, are you consenting? [To detention]

A: Yes. [This could be a short one]

In the gallery, a couple with a baby...  All rise!

 Lance Lazzaro, for Ahmed Altorei (he i$ retained)

Federal Defender for Samuel Bautista, with financial affidavit.

Judge: Cocaine base aka crack sales, using guns, brandished and discharged. Bautista is a felon, with .380 ammo 

Judge: Both consent to detention without prejudice. Medical order as to Mr Bautista.

  AUSA: Next is Sept 8 at 11 am in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

Afterward, the couple and the now older than a year baby went out together down the hall.

On September 8, the two were back in court, before SDNY Chief Judge Laura Taylor Swain. Inner City Press was there. Beyond setting the next conference for Novemver 15 at 11:30 am, Bautista asked to be released on bond.

The AUSA responded with a narrative of the background to the shooting: a feud with Tyrone Handley a/k/a Smokey, in and around 2860 Grand Concourse and 198th Street in The Bronx. The baby's parents spoke, and urged that detention be continued. As docketed on September 12, it was.

On October 5, docketed October 6, a superseding indictment, with Altorei, Bautista and Ronald Coradin a/k/a Scrappy...

On October 19 Coradin got his Rule 5(f) order before being detained on consent and Lance Lazzaro asked to make an application for bail for Altorei on October 25, citing six friends who would co-sign, from Panda Group and Alabama Chicken.

On October 24, the bail hearing was set for November 1, before Chief Judge Swain: "Request for the Opportunity to Make a Bail Application. ENDORSEMENT: The below request is granted. A bail hearing in this case is scheduled to proceed on November 1, 2023, at 3:30 PM in Courtroom 17C." Watch this site.

 Inner City Press will stay on the case(s). 

 The case is US v. Altorei, et al., 23-cr-407 (Swain / Gorenstein)
