NEWS - WWETV Administration

QUEENS, New York City — More than two dozen reputed gang members have been charged in a 141 count indictment in Queens, including two who were allegedly responsible for the stray bullet death of a 53-year-old school teacher walking his dog.

George Rosa was walking near the Queensbridge Houses when he was shot after two alleged gang members from the Ravenswood Houses fired at and missed a rival on July 25, 2020. He died just over a month later.


Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz and NYPD Chief of Detectives James Essig on Thursday announced the arrests of 28 alleged members of warring gang factions within the Queensbridge and Ravenswood public housing developments, who are variously charged with murder, attempted murder, attempted assault, criminal possession of a weapon and other crimes.

They are all charged with conspiracy to commit murder and possession of illegal firearms. Check out CBS NEW YORK report in the video below.
