Algiers man indicted for double murder in gang-related shooting
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A 24-year-old Algiers man was indicted for double-murder in the shooting of four purported Central City gang members with an assault-style rifle in June 2017.
Dwight "GB White" Washington was charged with two counts of second-degree murder in the slayings of 28-year-old Darrell "Micey" Pollard and 19-year-old Terran "Baby Trilla" Young in the indictment handed up by an Orleans Parish grand jury.
Washington also was charged with obstruction of justice in a homicide investigation and two counts of attempted second-degree murder, for the shootings of two other men in the murder victims' car when the ambush attack occurred shortly after 11 p.m. on June 15, 2017.
New Orleans police said the four victims were targeted when shot near South Carrollton Avenue and Earhart Boulevard, as part of an ongoing dispute between Washington's Ghost Gang and their Byrd Gang/Piff Gang.
One of the wounded survivors, Bruce "Stackkz" Pollard, 27, also was indicted Thursday. The grand jury charged him with obstruction of justice in a homicide investigation, an offense that carries a penalty of up to 40 years in prison upon conviction.
Criminal District Judge Robin Pittman increased Washington's bond amount from $1.5 million to $1.7 million with the addition of the obstruction count. Bruce "Stackkz" Pollard's bond was set at $200,000.
