Bronx Felon Who Fired Gun From Bodega on Tremont Avenue Is Detained in SDNY

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 19 – Charged with shooting a gun from the doorway of a bodega on Tremont and Third Avenues in The Bronx, Melquan Stewart was presented and had a bond hearing on March 19 before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Gary Stein.

Inner City Press was there, the only media in the SDNY Mag Court.  

 The Assistant US Attorney described the scene, including a couple on a motor scooter "festooned with heart-shaped balloons" as, he said, Stewart fired his gun.

 He said Steward claimed to have taken the gun from a man who tried to intervene in what he thought was domestic violence. But Stewart had a bullet fitting the gun, a Luger, in his pocket.  

While Stewart's daughter was in the back of the courtroom, with a baby in a stroller, Judge Stein said the government had met his burden on dangerousness, and ordered detention. 

His daugther, at the end, called out "I love you."

The case is US v. Stewart, 24-mj-948 (Stein)
