Defendant Sentenced To 24 Years In Prison For 2015 Murder


 Damian Williams, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced that BRYANT BROWN, a/k/a “Trigga,” was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Paul A. Engelmayer yesterday to 24 years in prison for the December 2015 murder of Albendris Nunez and a 2017 armed robbery.  

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said: “On a Sunday morning in 2015, Bryant Brown shot and killed Albendris Nunez in Devoe Park in the Bronx over $600 of marijuana.  For this senseless killing, Brown will serve a substantial sentence in federal prison.”

According to the allegations in the Indictment and other filings and statements made in court:

On or about December 20, 2015, BROWN attempted to rob Nunez of approximately $600 worth of marijuana in Devoe Park in the Bronx, New York.  BROWN set up the purported drug deal with Nunez over Facebook and instructed Nunez to meet him in Devoe Park.  BROWN brought a gun and planned to rob Nunez during this meeting and, during the planned robbery, shot Nunez in the back, killing him.   

On or about November 18, 2017, BROWN and a co-conspirator robbed a victim of liquid promethazine with codeine, also known as “wock” or “lean,” inside a residential apartment building in the Bronx, New York.  BROWN brought a gun to this robbery and struck the victim in the face with it.   

In addition to his prison sentence, BROWN, 26, was sentenced to three years of supervised release. 

Mr. Williams praised the outstanding investigative work of the New York City Police Department in this case.
