Keenen Upson Charged With Shooting Teens Outside Bishop Loughlin
Keenen Upson, a 20-year-old from Fort Greene, has been picked up and charged with assault and other counts in the shooting and wounding of five teens January 14 after a basketball game at Bishop Loughlin High. One of the teens told the Daily News that Upson, shown here stylin' like a moron in his Atlanta Braves ballcap, wanted the kid's Louis Vuitton hat.
The shooting helped prompt an angry rally that Sunday, the eve of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, by Brooklynites pleading for an end to the recent outbreak of gun violence. Only the day before the rally, a 16-year-old girl was shot in the face in Brownsville.
