Internal Brooklyn gang feud sparked playground assassination, police reveal, after 19-year-old arrested – New York Daily News

Internal strife among the Drench Gang prompted a Brooklyn gang banger to off his fellow street crew member in a crowded playground, police said
The motive of the April murder was revealed Friday, a day after accused gunman Dinikue Grant, 19, was charged with murder and gun possession for shooting Daquan Trantham, 20, on a basketball court at St. Andrew’s Playground at Atlantic and Kingston Aves, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, police said.

Kids and mothers pushing baby carriages ran for their lives as the bullets flew, witnesses said.
Trantham was shot in the chest and face, with responding officers performed CPR. He was rushed to Interfaith Medical Center, where he died.
“He was a high school graduate and a hard worker,” the victim’s father, Toriano Trantham, said at the time. “He was a good kid with a bright smile.”
The younger Trantham worked at a FedEx warehouse overnight, his aunt said.

Police said internal squabbling within the gang sparked the murder, with Grant, who was shot and wounded last year in Brownsville, seeking and getting revenge.
In that incident, on Nov. 29, Grant was shot in the abdomen, chest and buttocks during a confrontation on Fulton St. near Thomas Boyland St., police said.
Grant has a number of juvenile arrests for robbery, and a November 2021 arrest as an adult, a police source said.
