BROOKLYN, NEW YORK: Ninedee Gang, a Brooklyn-based street gang allegedly plotted the execution-style murder of Shatavia Walls, a federal witness who was labeled "a snitch". Walls was gunned down by two men on July 7, 2020, when she was taking a walk near the Pink Houses in East New York. The 33-year-old woman battled for life for 10 days at Brookdale Hospital before succumbing to her injuries. 

The latest report released by the US Attorney's Office, Eastern District of New York, reveals the details about how Walls' murder was cold-blooded and pre-planned. Several members of the Ninedee Gang were charged with racketeering, murder in-aid-of racketeering, drug trafficking, firearms offenses and robbery in connection with the murder of witness Shatavia Walls. Acting US Attorney Jacquelyn M Kasulis stated, "It is our hope that today’s charges against members of the Ninedee Gang bring some solace to the family of Shatavia Walls as we seek justice for her senseless, cold-blooded murder. This Office and its law enforcement partners are committed to ending the brutality that violent gangs so wantonly inflict on citizens in our communities. I commend the FBI special agents and the NYPD detectives for their relentless investigative work on the case."

What is the Ninedee Gang?

According to the unsealed court documents, Ninedee Gang is a violent street gang based at the Louis H. Pink House in New York. Four members of the gang, aged between 20 to 27 years, were named in the new charges announced by the federal court. Quintin Green aka 'Wild Child', 20, and Kevin Wint aka 'Kev G', 27, were arrested on August 9, 2021, and arraigned later that day. Two other members, 21-year-old Chayanee Fernandez (White Boy) and 27-year-old Maliek Miller (Leak) are already in federal custody.

Wint happens to be a gang leader, who promoted their activities on social media and in rap videos, where he glorified their acts of violence, drug sales, and fraudulent acts. According to the DOJ report, a few days after the murder of Walls, the arrested suspects shared an article about her death on Facebook and claimed credit on behalf of the Ninedee gang. 

"Additionally, Green is charged with the Hobbs Act robbery of a Target store on Staten Island on November 3, 2020; Wint with access device fraud; Fernandez, Miller and Wint with conspiracy to distribute marijuana; and Green, Fernandez and Miller with unlawful use and possession of firearms," the report further adds. 

Why was Shatavia Walls murdered? 

In 2017, Shatavia Walls was shot by a member of the Loopy Gang, who had close ties with the Ninedee Gang. Two years later, Walls testified in a Brooklyn federal court case against the gang member who shot her. During that time, she faced extreme harassment by the gang members, who posted flyers in her building, branding her as a "rat". 

A direct dispute between Walls and the arrested members of the Ninedee gang happened on July 4, 2020. She reportedly confronted them over lighting of fireworks on 4th of July. At that time, Maliek Miller called her a "snitch" and fired a gunshot in the air to warn her. The gang reportedly started plotting her murder from then on, ultimately deciding to shoot her on July 7. 

The report elaborated, "On the evening of July 7, 2020, Ninedee Gang members, including Green and a juvenile male, opened fire on Walls as she walked through a courtyard at the Pink Houses.  Walls was shot multiple times and succumbed to the gunshot wounds on July 17, 2020.  Ballistic evidence recovered from the scene of the fatal shooting showed that one of the handguns used to kill Walls matched the firearm used by Miller on the Fourth of July."

If convicted of their charges, Green, Fernandez, and Miller can face up to life imprisonment and will even be eligible for death penalty. Meanwhile, Wint can face up to 35 years of prison sentence for racketeering and serving as an accessory to Walls's murder.
