Violent New York drug gang busted in shooting that paralyzed girl

Dozens of accused members and associates of a violent gang that pistol-whipped and used hammers to attack rivals of their drug operation were indicted for crimes including a shooting that paralyzed a girl in Brooklyn, authorities said on Thursday.

A crackdown on the Gates Avenue Mafia resulted in a 146-count indictment naming 32 people, all but seven of whom have been arrested, Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson said in a statement. Charges range from conspiracy to sell narcotics and weapons to attempted murder.

The bust was the result of an investigation into the shooting in May of 11-year-old Tayloni Mazyck, who was waiting for her aunt outside a Brooklyn building when she was caught in the crossfire of gang members. Mazyck was left paralyzed from the waist down.

"There is absolutely no reason why an innocent 11-year-old girl should be caught in a hail of bullets while sitting outside with her family on a spring evening and is now paralyzed," Thompson said in the statement.

At a press conference, Thompson stood behind a sprawling display of 29 handguns recovered from the arrests made so far.

In one grisly episode that led to the indictments, three men allegedly broke the knees and ankles of two opponents by savagely beating them with hammers and pistol-whipping them. The assailants eventually shot one of the victims through a couch cushion.

That might be the next reality show pitch. If it picks up, I want my cut.

I thought handgun laws were very restrictive in NYC. I wonder how those gang members were able to get them?

I'd wager buying them from out of state or trafficking in from other places.

Thugs will use anything the can get their hands on to harm folks. I am sure after a year they will get reduced charges and roam the streets again ,

I doubt it. A little girl was paralyzed in the shootout. Hopefully these dudes spend the rest of their lives in jail.
