Well the thug who shot and killed Ricky Kalisaran and injured his brother in the first murder of 2017, which took place in South Richmond Hill, is behind bars after being caught in Pennsylvania. Dreshaun Smith, 22, has been brought back to New York. How much you want to bet that this thug ) I mean upstanding good citizen) is from Jamaica or SE Queens, though he might be a few areas over in Brooklyn at another shit hole worse than Jamaica, East New York.
BUT tell me something why did The Daily News have to write The brother, 24-year-old Sunny Kalisaran, was shot in the back but survived. He was wearing a flashy gold chain believed to have caught the shooter’s eye” . I mean really you had to use the term “flashy” making the victim sound at fault for wearing a gold chain. That is the equivalent of saying that a female who was raped was wearing a very sexy short tight dress. Come on Daily News, you should be a little above that. I mean you are a major newspaper, not some blog.
From The Daily News:
Members of the Pocono Mountain Regional Police picked up Dreshaun Smith, 22, in Monroe County on Thursday, according to the website The Morning Call.
Smith was captured about 110 miles from where he allegedly shot Ricky Kalisaran while trying to rob him and his brother in South Richmond Hill on Jan. 2.
The brother, 24-year-old Sunny Kalisaran, was shot in the back but survived. He was wearing a flashy gold chain believed to have caught the shooter’s eye.
The brothers were shot on 124th St. near Liberty Ave. about 3:25 a.m. Several hours earlier, they had attended their grandmother’s funeral, devastated family members said.
Cops identified Smith as the gunman early in the investigation.
The NYPD confirmed the arrest and said detectives were in the process of extraditing him back to New York, where he will be charged with murder, officials said.
As of Friday, there have been six murders citywide this year, compared to 10 during the same period last year, a 40% drop, according to NYPD statistics.
