The Bronx gang was arrested after bragging about wildly shooting rape

Nearly two dozen suspected gang members were charged Tuesday after “wildly” shooting at rivals and bragging about gun violence in drill-rap songs during a turf war in the Bronx, officials said.

“These defendants allegedly engaged in gun violence and committed six shootings, one of which injured a rival gang member,” Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark said.

“I’m calling on Bronx rappers to stop using music to incite gunfights and use it to improve community.” I’m asking for a summit with emerging Bronx rappers and rap stars, record companies, radio stations and social media so we can find solutions to prevent further violence.”

The 22 men and 17-year-olds – all suspected members of the River Park Towers gang – have been charged with conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder and weapons charges in a trio of charges involving multiple gun violence in the Bronx, according to prosecutors, as a gang attack on Rikers.

Clark said the alleged gang members “allegedly shot wildly in the street with no regard for the lives of others.”

In one of the brazen shootings on August 17, 2020, they fired nearly a dozen shots into a building vestibule, narrowly missing the head of their target.

According to Clark, the suspected shooters would brag about the violence and how easy it was to buy firearms in drill rap videos online, who added that they even posed with one of the guns used in a social media shooting.

“Hop out of the V and I shoot s–t up. Smoking on Noah. I don’t give af-k… Throw shots at a Crippy. Glock in the party if it doesn’t get small,” rapped Omar Gaines, 19, in a video bragging about a shooting by a rival gang on Nov. 28, 2020.

In the most recent shooting, Gaines and another defendant, Sheriff Jarjou, opened fire on a group of rival gang members on their territory outside of 1435 University Ave.

They also tried recruiting online, using “shocking acts” to gain a foothold, such as promising to kill a pigeon on Facebook Live for 100 likes.

The prosecutor’s office accused her of animal cruelty for the social media post.

“These long-term investigations by the Gun Violence Suppression Division are carefully constructed, precisely targeted tools that will have a tremendous impact on eliminating gun violence and improving the lives of all New Yorkers,” said Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell.
