Five people have been charged with the murder of Jonathan Tuck.
According to the United States Department of Justice, five people have been charged with robbery conspiracy, robbery, and murder through the use of a firearm. Tuck was unintentionally shot and killed in the scuffle as the men responsible have been identified as Luis Semiday (AKA PopOff), Richard Jimenez (AKA Showtime), Kevin Cruz (AKA Juice), Ira Lawson (AKA Malachi) and Curtis Hines (AKA Curt.) The names and nicknames were issued in a statement by the department of justice.
NYPD commissioner James P. O’Neill has commented on the charges, saying, “I applaud the tireless work of our NYPD detectives and our partners at the Southern District, whose close collaboration led to today’s charges. We have zero tolerance for crime and violence of any kind in our city, and New Yorkers in every neighborhood deserve to feel safe on our streets. Today, these five men are correctly being held accountable for their actions – which include, tragically, ending another man’s life.”
At least, the Tuck and Khaled families can grieve knowing that the men responsible for taking Jonathan’s life have been caught. R.I.P.
