A suspect was indicted by the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office for the shooting that took place in Brooklyn during the Old Timers Day event over the summer that left 11 bystanders wounded.
Kyle Williams, 20, of Brownsville was arraigned this week in Brooklyn Supreme Court and was charged with second-degree murder, two counts of first-degree assault, two-counts of second-degree assault, two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, and first-degree reckless endangerment.
Williams is being held without bail and he’ll return to court on Jan. 15. He faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted of the top count.
On the evening of July 27, Williams allegedly confronted Jason Pagan, 38, during Old Timers Day, an annual neighborhood celebration where more than 500 community members were gathered at the Brownsville Playground. Following a verbal dispute, the defendant allegedly pulled out a gun and fatally shot Pagan in the head and torso. A shootout between rival groups then erupted during which 11 innocent people, caught in the crossfire, were shot and wounded.
