Darius Lee, 21, was not the intended target when he was hit by a stray bullet at around 12:30 a.m. on June 20 in Harlem during a wild 13-gun shootout with dozens of shots, police said.
He was among nine people shot dead at a party hosted by local rapper Troy “Rich” Rhymer, authorities said at the time. There were seven male and two female gunshot victims.
