According to the authorities, four individuals have been apprehended for their participation in two distinct homicides that occurred in Brooklyn. The police reported this on Wednesday and further investigations are underway.
According to authorities, Ezequiel Delamerced, who is 29 years old, has been arrested in connection with the recent crime in Bushwick. The incident resulted in the death of Javier Sanchez, who was 33 years old, following a robbery that turned fatal.
According to previous reports, Sanchez was approached by a group of individuals at around 4:05 a.m. on September 3rd near the BP gas station located on Myrtle Ave. and Irving Ave. Interestingly, Sanchez’s residence was merely two blocks away from the site of the confrontation.
As seen in the blurry surveillance footage, a group of men approached Sanchez in the parking lot and pushed him to the ground. Despite being injured, Sanchez tried to get up and confront them, but unfortunately fell back down onto the pavement.
The victim was quickly transported to Elmhurst Hospital Center after sustaining a gunshot wound to the head. Tragically, despite the best efforts of medical personnel, he could not be saved.
According to his cousin’s statement to the Daily News last month, Sanchez had only been living in the city for just over a year before his tragic death. Although he had started a new life in Brooklyn, his 4-year-old daughter and mother still reside in Ecuador.
Early Wednesday morning, Delamerced was taken into custody and accused of committing multiple crimes, including murder, robbery, and possessing a weapon illegally.
Another individual has been arrested by the police in connection with the murder of Sanchez, making it the second arrest so far. The first arrest was made on September 12th, when a 17-year-old boy, whose identity was kept hidden due to being a minor, was taken into custody and charged with the same offenses as Delamerced.
Authorities are currently on the lookout for two individuals, Gonzalo Martinez, aged 23, and Sherlin Licurgo Espinoza, aged 19, who are believed to be implicated in the homicide case. The search for the suspects is still ongoing.
According to recent reports, the authorities have successfully identified and apprehended three suspects involved in the tragic killing of Ethen Flowers on February 6th. The incident, which took place after the victim had attended his girlfriend’s birthday celebration, had shocked the entire community. The police’s swift action in capturing the culprits has brought some solace to the victim’s family and friends. The investigation is ongoing, and more details are expected to emerge soon.
According to the victim’s family, he had just finished celebrating his girlfriend’s birthday and was leaving an Airbnb located on Paerdegat First St. near E. 79th St. in Canarsie when gunshots were heard. This incident occurred in February and was reported by The News.
The unfortunate event led to his admission to Brookdale University Hospital, where he eventually passed away.
Three individuals, Horace Campbell, Ray Martin, and Tyrese Robinson, were taken into police custody on Wednesday morning for their alleged involvement in the death of Flowers.
Both Campbell and Martin faced murder charges, while Robinson was charged with tampering with physical evidence.
Flowers’ older sister is still grieving the loss of her brother, who was slain eight months ago, at the family’s apartment in Downtown Brooklyn.
Ashantee Robinson shared with the Daily News how difficult it has been for her since her loved one passed away. She expressed how she still expects him to come home from basketball practice and how the feeling of loneliness and emptiness is overwhelming.
Flowers’ childhood bedroom remained untouched, inside the home.
Robinson, who is 26 years old, expressed her sadness as she said, “All of his belongings are still there, but he is not. He was only 20 years old and could not even celebrate his 21st birthday.”
As of Wednesday evening, the arraignments for all four individuals were still pending in Brooklyn Criminal Court.
