BROOKLYN — A third teen was arrested Tuesday, 15 days after he and two others shot five people, including an expecting mom who miscarried, in an ongoing gang dispute, prosecutors said.
Elijah Wells, 19, was indicted after his arrest along with two other members of a Bloods subset, for attempted murder, assault and attempted assault, according to the Brooklyn District Attorney's office.
"In light of the horrific shooting in Red Hook that caused a young woman to lose her baby, we're determined to put these defendants away for as long as possible," District Attorney Ken Thompson said.
The shooting stemmed from a March homicide and an Aug. 3 shooting of a member of the "Oww-Oww" gang, a subset of the Bloods, prosecutors said.
About 10:30 p.m. Aug. 3, Wells, along with 19-year-olds Quamari McAllister and Marquise Frederick — all members of "Oww-Oww" or the "Gowanus Crew" — drove a Ford Explorer to a party at 9A Dwight St., near Delavan Street, hopped out and opened fire, officials said.
The trio wounded two 20-year-old men and three women ages 19, 19 and 22, prosecutors said.
One of the 19 year olds was pregnant and miscarried as a result of the shooting, prosecutors said.
They fled in the Ford, which was registered to McCallister's father, prosecutors said.
McCallister and Frederick were arrested Aug. 5, officials said. They, along with Wells, were held without bail, officials said.
Wells is due back in court Oct. 27, prosecutors said.
McCallister and Frederick, who were not immediately arraigned on the indictment, were both due back in court Nov. 11, jail records show.
