NYC Ex-Convict Charged in Deadly Gunfight Less than Two Years After the District Attorney Overturned His Prior Murder Conviction!

Shamel Capers, a Brooklyn ex-convict whose murder conviction was overturned by prosecutors, finds himself embroiled in legal trouble once again. Capers, previously convicted in the shooting death of 15-year-old D’aja Robinson, has been charged in connection with a fatal shootout in Queens less than two years after his release from prison.

Following his release after serving eight years of a 15-year-to-life sentence, Capers faced new charges stemming from a shootout that claimed the life of 19-year-old Joshua Taylor. The incident occurred around 3:25 a.m. on Metropolitan Avenue near St. John’s Cemetery, marking a tragic escalation of violence in the area.

Critics have raised concerns over the Queens District Attorney’s decision to overturn Capers’ previous conviction, with some suggesting it was premature and contributed to the subsequent violence. However, the district attorney defended the decision, citing newly discovered evidence that led to the conclusion of Capers’ wrongful conviction. The fatal shootout, which erupted over a dispute between two groups, resulted in Taylor’s tragic death. Capers, along with two other individuals, now faces serious charges in connection with the incident.

Alleged gunman Dante Hunter, 25, was arraigned on murder and other charges, while Damone Miller, 21, faces charges of attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon, and reckless endangerment. As the legal proceedings unfold, authorities are intensifying efforts to combat gun violence in the borough, emphasizing the need for comprehensive measures to address such incidents effectively.
