‘Power’ Actor Isaiah Stokes Has Been Indicted for Murder in New York Shooting

Isaiah Stokes, who is famous for his role as Mozzy in Power has been charged with murder for fatally shooting a man in Queens, New York, in February.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the actor was found guilty of murder in the second degree and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree and will be sentenced on Monday.

He faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted.

A brief history of the legal drama, per Complex:

The 41-year-old actor and rapper was accused of shooting 37-year-old Tyrone Jones on Feb. 7 in Jamaica, Queens. On surveillance film, Stokes is allegedly seen ambushing Jones and opening fire on a parked Jeep Grand Cherokee in broad daylight, ultimately sending 11 rounds into the vehicle before fleeing the scene.

Jones immediately succumbed to his wounds and was pronounced dead by EMS. He lived about a mile and a half from the site of the incident. Prosecutors said it’s unclear why Stokes shot Jones, and haven’t shared the connection between them before the murder.

“The defendant is accused of unloading nearly eleven shots during this brazen afternoon shooting,” D.A. Melinda Katz said in a statement. “Gun violence is all too prevalent in our neighborhoods. We will not allow it to become the norm.”

We can’t wait to see how this pans out.
