According to The Daily News, sources say accused shooter Jamal Scott was retaliating for the 1998 murder of his older brother. Fox allegedly ordered associates to begin shooting after an argument in July of that year. Scott’s brother Curtis was hit and killed. He was 21 at the time.
“Jamal didn’t pull the trigger. He didn’t shoot him. He just happened to be there when it happened,” the unidentified girlfriend of Fox is quoting as saying. “This is 16 years ago and you’re still harboring that?… Killing Mazaradi, that’s not going to bring your brother back.”
Scott was charged with second-degree murder, attempted murder, and felony assault.
