NEW YORK — In the deadly shooting of a New York man in February, a television actor has been charged with murder.
His defense counsel was contacted and asked for comment on the accusations. Stokes has been in shows such as “Law & Order,” “Power,” and “Boardwalk Empire,” among others.
The shooting occurred on February 7th in the afternoon. Surveillance footage shows Stokes exiting a car between the Linden Boulevard and 200th Street junction and then shooting 11 bullets into a parked Jeep Grand Cherokee, according to authorities.
In a statement, Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz stated, “Gun violence is all too frequent in our communities.” “We will not accept it as the norm.”
