On Sunday, police announced the death of a man they say was shot to death by a parolee who had been released from prison only months before.
Clifton police say 26-year-old Quamane Rogers was shot in the face on Park Hill Ave., next to Sobel Court, at around 2:50 p.m. on Saturday. On the spot, he passed away.
Rogers, a West Brighton resident, was given parole in June after serving three years of a five-year sentence for a shooting on June 8, 2019. According to the Staten Island Advance, Rogers shot a man, age 29, leaving “holes” in the man’s intestines. The shooting occurred near a playground near Rogers’ West Brighton house.
After Rogers’ sentence, his defense attorney Lou Gelormino stated his client was taking classes in prison to get a certificate in construction “so he can get a good career when he is freed,” as reported by the Advance.
Rogers, then 18 years old, was arrested in February 2015 for allegedly punching and robbing a man in a Staten Island Subway. After questioning the 23-year-old victim if he was with the “OS” gang, he and three others allegedly attacked him.
Rogers allegedly beat up and robbed a friend on August 10 of that year over a petty debt.
During the incident, Rogers allegedly told the victim, “You owe me $15,” according to the Staten Island Advance, which cited police reports. I’ve decided to f—- you up.
Qua Clizzy was Rogers’s nickname back then.
Rogers and another suspect, according to the police, attacked the victim at the intersection of Markham Lane and Wayne Court at around 6:30 p.m.
Prosecutors claim that Rogers stole a cell phone from the victim as his accomplice beat him in the face, breaking his jaw.
On Sunday, it was unclear what would happen to all 2,105 instances.
