DA: JP gang member who really wanted to shoot somebody on turf of rival Roxbury gang succeeded on second tryBy adamg - 3/12/13 - 4:16 pm
A Braintree man associated with Jamaica Plain's Heath Street gang was ordered held in lieu of $75,000 bail today on charges he shot somebody on the home turf of the rival H-Block gang on Friday after he allegedly tried but failed to shoot somebody else on the same street the night before, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Prosecutors had asked for bail of $1 million for Paul Walrond, 22, of Braintree, at his arraignment today in Roxbury District Court. Judge David Weingarten set the lower amount.
UPDATE: Reactions from the DA's office and the victim's family in the comments below.
The Supreme Judicial Court today ordered a new trial for Lamory Gray, ruling the Heath Street gang member got an unfair trial before he was convicted of murdering somebody he thought was a member of the rival H-Block gang in 2006.
The court ruled a rap video, in which Gray was seen apparently pledging as a member of Heath Street, should not have been entered as evidence in his 2009 trial because it unfairly prejudiced the jury against him without having any direct connection to Herman Taylor's murder. Taylor was a Metco student who had nothing to do with gangs.
