2 brothers including one with previous murder bust caught in fatal Chelsea shooting: cops

Two brothers – including one who served time for murder as a youth – were arrested this week in connection with a shooting outside a Chelsea gallery that killed one man and wounded two others, police said.

Lmani Delima, 30, was picked up Friday in Long Island and Lashawn Delima, 32, was caught Tuesday in Brooklyn in the November 12 shooting of Rasithamar Grant, 42, police officers said. Both were charged with murder.

The bullets flew just after 10:15 p.m. on West 25th Street near 11th Avenue — in front of an upscale art gallery and steps from a ritzy event space — police said.

Grant, from Queens, was shot multiple times and taken by ambulance to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

An off-duty assistant warden at Rikers Island, Janae Gregg, 32, was also hit in the leg, police officers and police sources said. Also injured was a 37-year-old man who was shot multiple times in both legs, authorities said.

Police had no additional information Thursday about the motive for the violence or who was targeted in the shooting.

Lmani Delima was previously convicted of second-degree murder as a juvenile and was held in state prison from June 2011 to April 2019, when records say he was paroled.

According to the records, he was released by the parole board in April this year.

His older brother was held in state prison from April 2019 to April 2021 on second-degree robbery charges, records show.

His post-release supervision expired at the end of October.
