According to authorities, a man who was already serving time in a federal prison in Maine for a gun-related offense has been accused of murder in connection with a shooting at an East Harlem liquor store that was captured on camera last year. The police made this announcement on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Camby Wilson was extradited to New York City where he was charged with murder and gun possession. He is accused of killing 25-year-old Shaquell Gainey on the night of February 25th, 2022.
Federal officials have disclosed that Wilson, aged 24, was found guilty of federal firearm charges in Bangor, Maine, and received a 24-month prison sentence in May.
As per the reports, at the time of the incident, Gainey was exiting I.C. Liquors Inc. situated on First Ave. near E. 115th St. Suddenly, a man dressed in all black noticed him, took out a gun, and started shooting.
The gunman followed Gainey into the store, but quickly ran back out. Gainey retreated inside, and the attacker did not pursue him further.
As captured in the video footage, Gainey emerged from the store just ninety seconds later, with his yellow hoodie now stained with blood from the gunshot wound. In the aftermath, he discarded his jacket onto the ground and stumbled into the nearby deli. Eventually, he collapsed in front of the deli’s glass door.
Gainey took a few sips from a jug of water he discovered, and it took him roughly 90 seconds to do so. Despite one customer retrieving his jacket, nobody attempted to provide any medical assistance.
In a disturbing video, Gainey is seen lying on the ground as a man with a small child steps over him. Despite being rushed to Harlem Hospital, Gainey tragically did not survive.
As he was approaching his home in the Jefferson Houses, Gainey was struck by a bullet and fell just a block away. On Wednesday, the police revealed that the shooting had a connection to a gang, but they did not provide any additional information.
According to records, Wilson was released on parole in April 2021. He had spent over a year in state prison for a weapon conviction in Manhattan. Several weeks following the reported shooting of Gainey, Wilson was riding in a vehicle that law enforcement officials in Augusta, Maine stopped.
As the officers requested Wilson to exit the car, he provided them with a fake name. Upon inquiry about the presence of any weapons, he fled the scene, but was soon caught after a short pursuit on foot.
According to federal officials, they discovered a loaded .380 caliber pistol in his jacket pocket. As he had previously been convicted for weapon possession in New York, he was prohibited from carrying any firearms.
According to federal officials, Wilson was discovered by NYPD detectives at a federal prison in Maine, where he was serving a two-year sentence for a firearms arrest in Bangor. According to the police, Gainey had been arrested multiple times in the past for robbery and weapon possession.
