-columbus,ohio : 7yo boy killed caught in crossfire between bloods & crips

Post by Quiet-Q » March 17th, 2016, 11:19 am

The shooting that claimed the life of 7-year-old De’Ontae Fisher on March 4 was part of a gang war that has simmered for months and erupted in retaliatory violence that police believe is behind at least one other homicide.

The Dispatch has learned from law-enforcement sources that at the time of De’Ontae’s death, detectives already had established that Marctarius Grace, who is charged with murder in the boy’s death, and Rayquan Holloway, the teen who was shot and wounded alongside De’Ontae, are key players in the gangs involved. Holloway is what police call a “documented” member of the Milo-Grogan Bloods, and Grace is a Trevitt-and-Atcheson Crip.

Police believe the feud has led to multiple crimes of violence, including the still-unsolved fatal shooting of 13-year-old Italy McCrae.

In the week since De’Ontae died, city officials, local clergy members and community activists have urged widespread action to interrupt the cycle of violence that ensnared him.

De’Ontae was shot in the head as he, his two younger siblings and Holloway waited in a car outside the Express Market at 900 E. Fifth Ave.

Nick Omar, the market’s owner, said he did not recognize De’Ontae’s mom, Judith Huntley, and a young man with her when they entered his store. They were agitated and did not shop; Huntley was talking hurriedly into her phone about having been chased there by another car. She seemed to be trying to get the people on the other end to come to the store to back them up, Omar said. She was still talking when gunfire erupted outside.

The store’s surveillance cameras show the moment the car windows shatter. The shooter stood off to the side of the store near some trees, firing repeatedly into the car before jumping into a white Nissan Murano. Calls flooded into 911, with horrified exclamations from witnesses as they realized how young De’Ontae was.

“Oh God, it looks like a kid got shot!” one man said. “It’s a kid!”

Witnesses said that Huntley and the wounded Holloway initially didn’t tell police that they could identify the shooter. They did so only after officers were alerted that Huntley had mentioned Grace by name in her earlier phone calls.

Informants have told detectives that the Trevitt gang was responsible for “numerous gang-style shootings, home invasions and robberies in the King Lincoln and North Linden neighborhoods” last year.

Police believe the shooting in which Italy McCrae was killed and her sister wounded in their house last June was meant for their brother, Lee Divine McCrae. He was a suspected Trevitt Crip, and the family had moved into the Milo-Grogan neighborhood, according to police.

Ten days after she died, officers noticed that members of the Milo Bloods were cutting down trees and shrubs in the backyard of a home they frequented in the neighborhood, likely to improve their field of fire and reduce chances of an ambush.

Sgt. Rich Weiner, a spokesman for the Police Division, said investigators would not talk specifically about the gangs. But he stressed that investigations like the 2013 local-federal takedown of the Short North Posse gang can be long and complex.

“We’re not talking weeks or months,” he said. “Sometimes those go on for years.

“Sometimes there’s a (public) misperception of how long it takes,” he said. “We understand the frustration the neighbors and the community feel.”

Much of the violence that plagues city neighborhoods is back-and-forth beefing among rivals, said Cecil Ahad, who heads up the anti-violence group Men for the Movement.

“All this stuff is retaliatory,” he said Thursday as he and about 75 men and women rallied at the King Arts Complex on the Near East Side to announce an expansion of their 10K Fearless PeaceMakers violence-reduction effort.

Deanna Wilkinson is an Ohio State University professor who has studied youth gun violence and spent years working to reduce it with Ahad and others in one South Side neighborhood. She said the youths who are most at risk of being both victims and perpetrators of gun violence are often marginalized by society. They haven’t developed the skills to handle even minor conflicts, and the culture of violence surrounding them has normalized what outsiders might see as an extreme response to perceived slights.

“When they’re caught up in the mindset, they can’t just let those little things go,” Wilkinson said. “They feel that if they let the other side win over some little thing, then that makes them weak.

“They don’t have effective tools to manage their emotions,” she said. “These are scripts that they’re reacting to. They’re reacting without thinking.”

Wearing blaze-orange hats and hoodies, the PeaceMakers pledge to become common sights on street corners throughout the city. Armed with eight weeks of training in conflict resolution, they will spend days and nights in neighborhoods beset by violence. Minister Donell Muhammad of the Nation of Islam said the volunteers will offer a sense of security and a nonjudgmental message that even the most at-risk youth matter and can change.

At the Express Market, owner Nick Omar said he hasn’t shaken the fact that a child so young died in front of his store. He said he’s lost sleep and asked police and his most loyal customers how it could have been avoided, even though he knows the market’s involvement was random.

Pastor Marla Tatum is one of those customers.

“These kids are looking for love, and they’re looking for acceptance anywhere they can,” she said, standing beside the memorial of pictures, stuffed animals and candles that appeared outside the market after De’Ontae’s death.

Ahad is optimistic that societal norms can change in the face of unwavering commitment from a community. He said he’s seen it in his South Side neighborhood, where violence has ebbed but efforts to eradicate it continue.

“That’s what it takes,” Ahad said. “It just takes time.”
