Rockaway Gun Thug: ‘Didn’t Mean To Do It’
A 27-year-old Far Rockaway man who shot a bystander in 2007, has been convicted for manslaughter for gunning down the innocent bystander.
Naquan Glover faces up to 25 years in prison when he’s sentenced on March 3 in Queens Criminal Court for the murder of Dwayne King on June 24 2007 in front of the Edgemere Houses. A jury acquitted Glover of second degree murder, which carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.
Prosecutors said at the trial that during a heated argument with another man, Glover fired several shots from a 9 millimeter automatic pistol, one of which struck King, who was standing nearby. Glover took the witness stand in his own defense and said that he pulled his gun and fired the shots to protect himself from the man with whom he was arguing.
“I pulled the gun to scare him, but he didn’t get scared,” Glover said. “I fired a few shots to scare him. I wasn’t deliberately aiming at anyone.”
