    (August 15, 1966-December 22, 2011)
    Resident of the South Bronx
    Shot in the chest by 'subway vigilante' Bernhard Goetz (December 22, 1984)
    Imprisoned for rape and related charges (1986-2002)
    Returned to jail for parole violations (2005-10)
    Died in a hotel room of a drug overdose in an apparent suicide
    In a later newspaper interview, fellow shooting target Troy Canty admitted that the group had decided to rob Goetz because he 'looked like easy bait.'
    He and two of the other youths shot by Goetz were carrying sharpened screwdrivers.
    He falsely reported to police that men hired by Goetz kidnapped him and tried to kill him (March, 1985).
    When he testified during Goetz's trial for attempted murder, his repeated angry outbursts prompted the judge to cite him for contempt, order him removed from the court and disallow his testimony.
    He held the gun on a pregnant 18-year-old while an associate raped and sodomized her (May, 1985).
    He was briefly in a coma after being shot.
    In a statement to police, Goetz admitted that he believed none of the men he shot to have been armed.
    He learned the lesson, 'Don't bring a screwdriver to a gun fight.'
    He committed suicide on the anniversary of the subway shooting.
