Police Arrest Man Who Orchestrated Fatal Bronx Shooting
Calendar icon January 28, 2021

The police announced that they have arrested the man who set up a fatal Bronx shooting in which a teenage boy was killed. The police also charged the victim’s brother for possessing a gun when he showed up at the scene.

Nineteen-year-old Desire Louree was charged with murder on January 14, 2021 for setting up the shooting that killed sixteen-year-old Kahlik Grier on January 11.

Louree was a known gang member who got out of jail a month before the fatal Bronx shooting. He planned an ambush on four people that were going to a party on the ninth floor in Webster Avenue in Norwood, the police said.

Louree wasn’t in the building when the shooting happened, the police said. The police are still seeking the trigger man.

The shooter opened fire on the group shortly before midnight, hitting a nineteen-year-old man in the upper body and a twenty-two-year-old man in his ankle. The other guests at the party, a man and a woman weren’t hurt. 

The gunman escaped down the stairs and while running he came across Khalik on the eight floors. The teen was going back home after playing video games with a friend on the seventh floor. The gunman shot him dead. 

According to the Chief of Detectives, Rodney Harrison, the victim was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The teenager died later at Jacobi Medical Center.

The wounded victims took themselves to the Montefiore Medical Center. The medics transferred  them to Jacobi Medical Centre; they’re in stable condition. 

Even though the police charged Khalik’s brother for carrying a gun at the scene, the detectives don’t believe he was anyhow connected to the fatal Bronx shooting.

  • I am writing this letter to say how much I appreciate your services pertaining to my case. Your injury attorney took a hands-on approach and left me fully informed at all times as to where my case was going as well as how much ground we had to cover; leaving the final decisions in my hands but making sure that I knew all of the risks involved in the choices. I have dealt with a few law firms in my life on various different cases and this is the first time that I never had to call and/or track down my lawyer… because of this, I have and will continue to recommend Cellino Law to my friends and associates.


  • Choosing the right attorney to represent you after an accident can make all the difference. This is no cliche. I recently experienced these words to live by first hand. After a tractor trailer rear ended me at high speed in 2017 I retained Allan Silverstein to handle my case. I quickly realized that bringing a lawsuit rapidly snowballs into a mountain of details that can make or break your results. Documents, case histories, doctor visits, bills, and lots of phone calls all need to be accurately kept track of if a successful outcome it to be attained. To complicate matters I reside in New York and the incident took place in New Jersey. Luckily, Allan was licensed in multiple states. I was fortunate to find Allan to handle this matter from the New York area. Armed with an accurate account of the facts Allan went to work on the difficult job of negotiating with the defending insurance company as well as my no fault carrier in order to obtain the best possible outcome for my set of circumstances. In a lawsuit communication is key and and events can be of a timely nature. Allan never failed to return my calls - usually the same day! He fought skillfully and respectfully to get me the best possible settlement. He is easy to deal with and a likeable down to earth guy. He always listened with compassion and respect to my issues. He guided me with objective understanding as well as a realistic analysis of the merits of my case. When we finally settled Allan got me a fair agreement beyond my expectations and negotiated with my doctors to make sure all my bills were paid. It was a great experience having Allan represent me. Quality work in any aspect of life is hard to find. Quality is what I got with Allan Silverstein. I highly recommend him if you find yourself in need of a personal injury attorney.


  • It was a great pleasure working with you on my lawsuit. You certainly gave 150% of your time and interest in settling my case and for that, I am extremely grateful. Therefore, I want to thank you very much for helping me win my settlement and wish you the very best.


  • I am so grateful for your expertise, patience, and perseverance which resulted with such a successful settlement regarding my car accident. I also want to let you know how impressed I was with you and your firm and I won't hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs assistance from an accident. I truly appreciated your care and professionalism. Thank you again for your kindness and support


  • I really just wanted to say thank you so much for taking my case, answering all my questions, and mostly for being very patient with me. I feel that without you and Roza I would not have been able to get anything at all. I hope to never need a lawyer again, but if I do I will definitely want you both working for me. Again thank your for you hard work, time and patience.
