Bronx “YGz” Gang Member Pleads Guilty To Stomping Murder Of 16-Year-Old

Joon H. Kim, the Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced that ANTHONY REDDICK, a/k/a “Ant Flocka,” pled guilty today in Manhattan federal court to his involvement in the “Young Gunnaz” or “YGz” gang by participating in the murder of Moises Lora, 16, during which REDDICK and several other YGz gang members stomped Lora to death in a courtyard in the Melrose housing projects in the Bronx on April 16, 2012. REDDICK is scheduled to be sentenced later this year by United States District Judge Valerie E. Caproni, before whom REDDICK pled guilty.

Acting Manhattan U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim said: “Moises Lora was only 16 years old when Anthony Reddick and his fellow gang members brutally stomped Lora to death in a vicious attack. Thanks to the tireless work of law enforcement, Reddick has now admitted his role in this brutal murder. Although we cannot bring Lora back, we hope that his family will find some small measure of solace in today’s guilty plea.”

According to the Indictment and other documents filed in the case, as well as statements made during REDDICK’s guilty plea and other court proceedings in this case:

REDDICK was a member of the Bronx-based street gang known as the YGz. From 2005 to 2016, members and associates of the YGz enriched themselves by committing robberies and by selling drugs, such as crack cocaine, heroin, and marijuana, and committing acts of violence, including the murder of rival gang members, rival drug traffickers, and innocent bystanders.

As part of his involvement in the YGz gang, REDDICK and several other YGz gang members murdered Lora, a member of a rival gang, on April 16, 2012, in the South Bronx. Specifically, on the date of the murder, a group of YGz members, including REDDICK, got drunk, and began arguing among themselves about who had done the most for the YGz. This group of YGz members went to the territory of a rival gang in the Melrose housing projects to settle their dispute. Upon arriving at the Melrose projects, REDDICK and other members of the YGz saw Lora and attacked him. During the attack, Lora’s skull was fractured in several places. REDDICK and the group left Lora to die. Following the stomping, REDDICK and several of his confederates bragged to fellow YGz members about what they had done.

REDDICK, 22, of the Bronx, pled guilty to one count of racketeering conspiracy, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison. REDDICK is the third defendant in United States v. Kareem Lanier, et al., 15 Cr. 537 (VEC), to plead guilty to participating in the stomping murder of Lora.
