New York authorities arrested an 18 year old gang member yesterday ( May 11), who fatally shot a 14 year old girl after being infuriated by a homemade rap song insulting his gang.
According to police, Terrell Gray, 18, of Ronkonkoma, L.I. accompanied by peers of his gang The Browns, showed up uninvited to a party that was being held by a rival gang, The Deuces, on April 8.
Members of the Browns were then asked to leave the party several times, but they only left for short periods and kept coming back. At some point during the party, the Deuces played their song called "The Deuces Anthem", which spoke harshly about The Browns' girlfriends and mothers.
Gray, upset by the song, went with the Browns through a back door.
Once outside, he pulled a 9-mm gun and shot at a window. The bullet from the gun went into the room filled with partygoers and hit Danielle Baker in neck.
Baker, a straight-A student at CopiagueMiddle School, died instantly in the arms of her 12-year-old sister.
Gray was arraigned yesterday at First District Court in Central Islip on charges of second-degree murder. He was denied bail and is due back in court on Tuesday (May 16).
