NYC ex-con shot dead just months after release on parole for shooting a man
A Staten Island ex-con was shot dead just months after his release from parole for shooting a man, police said Sunday.
Quamane Rogers, 26, was shot in the face on Park Hill Ave. near Sobel Court in Clifton about 2:50 p.m. Saturday, cops said. He died at the scene.
Rogers, of West Brighton, was paroled from prison in June after he was sentenced to three years for a June 8, 2019, shooting. Rogers shot a 29-year-old man near a playground not far from his West Brighton home, leaving ”holes” in the man’s intestines, the Staten Island Advance reported.
At his sentencing, defense lawyer Lou Gelormino said Rogers was enrolled in a jail program to earn a certificate in construction “so he can find a good job when he is released,” the Advance reported.
In February 2015, Rogers, then 18, was arrested in connection with the beating and robbery of a man inside a Staten Island Subway sandwich shop. He was one of four suspects accused of attacking the 23-year-old victim after asking if he was a member of the “OS” gang.
And then on Aug. 10 of that year Rogers allegedly beat and robbed an acquaintance over a small debt.
“You owe me $15,” Rogers told the victim, cops at the time told the Staten Island Advance. “I’m going to f--- you up.”
Rogers went by the nickname Qua Clizzy at the time.
Police say Rogers and another suspect, attacked the victim at about 6:30 p.m. at the corner of Markham Lane and Wayne Court.
The accomplice punched the victim in the face, shattering his jaw, while Rogers snatched a cellphone out of the victim’s pocket, prosecutors said.
The disposition of the 2105 cases was not clear Sunday.
Police could not say Sunday whether Rogers’ death was gang-related but he was affiliated with at least two Staten Island gangs, cop sources said.
Police have made no arrests in his slaying.
