According to the NY Daily News this morning, police suspect that a man rumored to have killed Stack Bundles was murdered in a possible retaliation early this morning. Here’s the article:
The murder of a man in Springfield Gardens yesterday may be connected with the ambush killing of a popular rapper last week in Far Rockaway, police sources said.
Charles White, 20, an aspiring rapper, was killed execution-style in a house on 176th St. in Queens about 12:20 a.m., cops said. He was found dead on a sofa with a pillow over his head and two bullet wounds behind his ear and a leg wound, a source said.
Cops say White’s murder may be in retaliation for the death of up-and-coming rapper Rayquon Elliott, 24, known as Stack Bundles, who was shot dead in the lobby of his Far Rockaway residence on June 11, another police source said.
Cops suspect White may have gone to Virginia, where he lived, right after the Elliott murder, but returned to New York last Saturday with friend Kelvin Brown, 27, who had just left the home when White was shot, sources said.
After hearing the shots, Brown ran back into the home and called police, cops said.
Neighbors on the normally quiet street expressed shock that a shooting occurred in the vacant house. It has been up for sale by the owners, Green Team Realty, for several months, according to a woman who answered the phone at the real estate company.
One neighbor, who didn’t want to give his name, saw three men on the stoop of the home Sunday night.
“One of them said Happy Father’s Day to me,” said the neighbor, 71, who described the men as “young and very polite and nice.”
The scene of the shooting is directly across the street from the Friendship Baptist Church.
“Everything happens according to the company you keep,” said the church’s pastor, Deacon Garrett Turley, 53.
No arrests have been made. The investigation is continuing, cops said.
Honestly, the violence has to stop SOMEWHERE! Everyday I read the paper and hear about black people shooting, robbing or stabbing somebody! We need to stop feeding into these negative stereotypes, because if the bad outweighs the good we will ALL look bad.
