The man who allegedly gunned down a 17-year-old on East 96th Street and Flatlands Avenue last month was put behind bars after he was shot up outside of an East Flatbush nightclub, officials said this week.
Police sources said that after searching for him for weeks, Trevon Killings, 18, was finally found in a Brooklyn hospital, mending from the wounds he received following a shooting at Clarkson Avenue near East 51st Street on November 3.
He was immediately arrested in connection with the shooting of Dudzinskis Dudenas in the back on October 20 and was charged with murder in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon.
Killings was one of three people shot outside a neighborhood nightclub. He was reportedly shot in the neck and was listed in stable condition after treatment.
A second victim, 21, died after being shot in the head. A third victim, a 26-year-old woman, was shot in the arm, officials said.
Police said that there were certain gang links to Dudenas’ killing. Witnesses said that the young man was flashing gang colors and signs before he was killed.
Investigators would not disclose which gang they believe the 17-year-old was affiliated with.
Cops said that the shooting took place after two groups of youths faced off at a corner. None of the people involved were from Canarsie, officials said.
A 70-year-old woman as beaten to the ground and robbed after she crossed paths with three teenage terrors.
Police said that the trio -- all young women -- were apprehended shortly after the mugging, which took place at 5:30 a.m. on November 3.
The senior told police that she was nearing the corner at Avenue M and East 94th Street when 17-year-old Mariah Green, 18-year-old Demaris Bryan and 18-year-old Jasmin Day jumped her.
They reportedly punched the woman, knocked her to the ground and then snatched her purse.
Responding officers arrested the three teens a few blocks away from the attack, charging the trio with robbery, assault and grand larceny.
A spat between roommates involving a machete led police to a small stash of marijuana and a loaded firearm, officials said this week.
Police said that they were called to an East 98th Street home near Flatlands Avenue at 7:45 p.m. on November 6 to break-up a brawl between 35-year-old Duane Bender and 28-year-old Omarion Desince.
Officials were told that Bender allegedly picked up a machete and threatened Desince with it. In turn, Desince allegedly threatened Bender with a weapon -- a stick.
Cops disarmed both men and searched the home, where they allegedly found eight ounces of marijuana and a gun in Bender’s home.
Cops charged him with menacing, criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of marijuana.
Desince was also carted off to the 69th Precinct, charged with menacing and harassment, officials said.
A 17-year-old was arrested last week after he allegedly turned the top of a Glenwood Houses apartment building into a shooting gallery.
Prosecutors allege that Ty-Meem Johnson was charged with criminal possession of a weapon, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest after he allegedly fired off a number of rounds on the top of a building near Avenue H and East 57th Street, on the south side of the Glenwood Houses.
Cops said that they were patrolling the Flatlands housing complex at 7:10 p.m. on November 7 when they heard the shots.
When they approached the building, they saw Johnson flee the building, a .9-mm Ruger in his hand.
Johnson tried to run off, but was apprehended after a brief chase.
Investigators later learned that he had fired the shots from the rooftop, although it was unclear if he was aiming at anyone.
Police said that there were about fifteen people in front of the building when the shots were fired. Any one of them could have been hit by a stray bullet, they said.
Thanks to the miracle of DNA typing, a drop of blood recovered from a looted car helped police apprehended the thief responsible for the break-in.
Police said that Frank Aspromonte, 36, was charged with grand larceny, criminal mischief this week after he was identified as the thief who broke into a 2001 Ford Ecoline E250 parked on Ralph Avenue near Avenue K back on the night of August 16.
The victim told police that when he returned to his car the next morning, his side window was broken. An iPod, satellite radio, GPS device and hundreds of dollars in car stereo equipment had been ripped out of the car, officials were told.
The only lead police had was some blood that was found on the dashboard, seat, visor and some paperwork rifled through in the glove compartment.
Believing that the thief must have cut himself when he bashed the window, police collected a sample of the blood and sent it to a DNA lab.
The DNA matched Aspromonte’s which was catalogued in the state’s criminal justice database.
On top the other charges, Aspromonte is also facing one count of burglary, since the victim used his Ford for business, officials said.
Police are continuing their search for the gunmen responsible for opening fire on two Old Mill Basin residents last month.
Officials were told that two masked men entered a home on East 58th Street near Avenue K just after 8:30 a.m. on October 5 and opened fire on a 38-year-old woman and a 37-year-old man they found inside.
The female victim was struck twice in the leg, officials said. The male suffered a gunshot wound to the arm.
Witnesses said that the unidentified suspects fled the area in a brown jeep.
Police were still searching for the gunmen, who they believe specifically targeted the couple, as this paper went to press. Detectives are looking into the possibility that the victims had a previous history with their assailants, who they may know, according to sources.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is urged to contact the 63rd Precinct at (718) 258-4411. All calls will be kept confidential.
