Kay Flock is in jail awaiting trial on a second-degree murder charge.
New York prosecutors say he shot a man to death in front of a Harlem barbershop in December of 2021.
None that may even matter. This week the Feds hit the 19-year-old with RICO charges for his involvement with NYC-based Sev Side/DOA Gang.
More specifically, Flock is facing charges of racketeering conspiracy, murder in aid of racketeering, use of a firearm resulting in death, attempted murder and assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering, use of a firearm for attempted murder and assault with a dangerous weapon. He faces up to life in prison.
All in all the Sev Side/DOA gang is being tied to seven shootings between 2020 and 2022.
Flock’s lawyer Jeffrey Litchman said he will fight all the charges.
“We’re not surprised by the federal charges as we’ve been fighting Kevin’s state murder charge for over a year now—and considering the shooting was a clear act of self-defense, it wasn’t a particularly strong charge,” the statement reads. “That it’s now being used as a basis for a possible death penalty charge is extraordinary. On video, it is crystal clear that Kevin was about to be shot after attempting to walk away from his attacker. Only then, did Kevin use a weapon to defend himself and another from an armed, violent gang member who was about to pull out the loaded gun in his hand.”
