What Happened At The Scene?
The frightening and violent sight near the junction of Valentine Avenue is just the most recent evidence of New York’s gun violence problem, which has already claimed the lives of three people and maimed many more.
A shooting in Times Square in May injured three people, including a four-year-old girl. A newlywed marine was hit by a stray bullet in another shooting in Times Square in June. Joseph Bryan, Ice-close T’s friend, was tragically shot in Long Island on August 19.
Little is known about the father and son, who both appear to have lengthy criminal records. Raphael has been arrested over 60 times, according to sources, for a variety of offenses including drug use, assault, and firearm possession.
Michael, his son, has a criminal history, having been arrested for aggravated driving without a license and other minor infractions. It was not possible to gather any additional information on the due date.
They don’t seem to be active on social networking sites such as Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. We have a lot of details about the incident that resulted in Michael’s death and Raphael’s detention.
According to the New York Daily News, the two got involved in a fight with a group of people at 4:00 a.m., a block away from the NYPD’s 46th precinct. It’s unclear what they were talking about, but it swiftly escalated into a violent altercation, as seen by CCTV footage of Michael sprinting to his car and returning with a gun.
Two off-duty cops spotted Michael shooting many times. Michael refused to obey when the brave cops announced themselves and urged him to down his firearm. Michael is said to have opened fire on the officers, who returned fire. Michael was hit in the chest by one of the bullets.
Other officers were alerted by the firefight and immediately swamped the area. Raphael took his son’s revolver and started shooting at the cops before fleeing. He returns to the scene minutes later, without the gun, to tend to his dying son, but is quickly apprehended.
