An arrest has been made in the recent Jamaica shooting/killing of 36 yearl old Niheen Donigan this past Sunday at 109th Ave and 171st St, an area that has seen it’s share of shootings and killings (since September there have been four shootings/killings including a deli owner). Moses Gun was arrested in the death of Donigan who himself was convicted of killing Kevin Aswald back in 2001 over a drug dispute not far from where Donigan was killed and spent 10 years in prison.
If this cycle continues, will Moses Gun become another statistic in this far too violent community.
Is the violence in this community being properly addressed and more importantly is the decline of the quality of life in this community even being addresses by leaders such as elected officials and the many church leaders in the community, including the all powerful Rev. Flake whose church sits a few blocks from this violence prone area. AND is the issue of proper services in this mostly black community that has been lacking for decades due to poor leadership and continual ignoring of issues in this community being addressed at all. If the past is any indication, certainly not, especially with the bad behavior of the leaders, many who have been sent to jail on corruption charges like Former Senators Shirley Huntley & Malcolm Smith and Assembly Member William Scarborough.
And again WHAT are all of you church leaders really doing, I mean there seems to be a church on every single block and in some cases, two or three.
And residents of Jamaica, exactly WHAT are some of you actually doing to better the neighborhood, because I mean, it is your community too.

UPDATE: An arrest has been made in connection to the shooting that killed a Jamaica man
The man who fatally shot a Jamaica man over the weekend has been arrested.
Niheen Donigan, 36, was fatally shot in the head while standing with a group of people at the corner of 109th Avenue and 171st Street at about 2:18 a.m. on Sunday morning, Oct. 30. The motive for the shooting remains unclear.
According to police, Donigan, who resided on 110th Avenue in Jamaica, was among the group when the unidentified shooter began firing.
Officers from the 103rd Precinct and EMS units responded to the scene. Donigan was rushed to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. No other injuries were reported.
Law enforcement records revealed that Donigan had been convicted of first-degree manslaughter in April 2002 for his role in a deadly shooting a year earlier. The Times-Ledger reported that Donigan allegedly shot Aswald Walker, 28, at the corner of 107th Avenue and 160th Street in Jamaica on April 14, 2001 during a dispute over drugs.
Donigan served 10 years for the manslaughter conviction before he was released on parole in July 2012, according to the state Department of Corrections.
On Wednesday, Nov. 2, police arrested Moses Blake, following an active investigation. He was charged with one count of murder second degree, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of false personation.
Anyone with information regarding Sunday’s deadly shooting is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS, visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
