According to the indictment, Isaiah allegedly killed 37-year-old Tyrone Jones on Feb. 7 in Jamaica, Queens. Authorities say that they have surveillance footage that allegedly showed Isaiah approaching Jones’ parked car before firing 11 gunshots into the car. Jones later died of his injuries.
“The defendant is accused of unloading nearly eleven shots during this brazen afternoon shooting,” D.A. Melinda Katz said in a statement. “Gun violence is all too prevalent in our neighborhoods. We will not allow it to become the norm.”
If convicted, Isaiah faces 25 years-to-life in prison. A grand jury charged him with murder in the second degree and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree.
