In recent days, multiple reports have stated MarGielaa was arrested earlier this month and is expected to make a court appearance this week. The shooting in question, per a prior report from regional Queens-focused outlet QNS, began with a group of men getting into an argument near the intersection of Astoria Boulevard across from the Grand Central Parkway.
Police said at the time that one man in the group pointed a gun at another man, who fired and struck the individual in the stomach. This individual is then alleged to have passed his gun to another man, who opened fire but missed. All involved individuals subsequently left the site of the incident, some of which was captured on surveillance footage initially shared in July.
Online booking records viewed by Complex show MarGielaa was arrested on Sept. 1 and housed at the Eric M. Taylor Center in Queens on a second-degree attempted murder charge. The bail status is listed as having been remanded, meaning MarGielaa could be held until a potential trial. The NYPD confirmed to Complex that MarGielaa is also facing five counts of assault, three counts of criminal possession of a weapon, one count of reckless endangerment.
Complex has reached out to reps for MarGielaa for comment. This post may be updated.
