Jurors delivered a mixed verdict Wednesday for the final two men charged in the death of Carey Gabay, a former aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
According to investigators, Gabay died in the crossfire of a gang shootout in 2015 just hours before the American West Indian Day Parade in Crown Heights.
The jury found Micah Alleyne guilty of manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon and Stanley Elianor guilty of reckless endangerment.
Jurors found both men not guilty of the top charge against them: second-degree murder. Gabay's family members stormed out of the courtroom moments later.
Jurors found a third defendant, Keith Luncheon, not guilty on all counts on Monday. And last week, Kenny Bazile was convicted of second-degree manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon -- but he too was found not guilty of murder.
A fifth defendant, Tyshawn Crawford, avoided a possible life sentence by taking a plea deal in exchange for testifying against the other men.
