Calvin Shaw Held in Fatal July 4 Gang Shooting

Calvin Shaw was ordered held today pending a preliminary hearing on a charge that he took part in a fatal gang-related shooting on the Fourth of July.

Nineteen-year-old Crevantai Key was killed in that shooting. Three others were injured.

Shaw, listed in court records as Sharkim Robinson, as well as Sharkim Sharp, is suspected of first-degree murder while armed.

Police say he is one of three men who approached the victim and his friends on July 4 in Fort Totten and that he fired a silver handgun at them “without provocation.”

That’s according to the account of one of the victims in the case, who also told police that he heard someone say just before the shooting started “that’s them KDY youngins.” It is not clear in the charging documents whether that statement is believed to have come from the victims or the suspects involved, but charging documents state that Shaw told detectives that he is associated with the crew.

According to those documents, one of the people injured in the shooting remains hospitalized. That victim was struck by a bullet in the back as he ran away and has undergone a series of procedures and surgeries. The two other victims have been released. One of those victims was shot through from the shoulder blade to the neck. The other was shot along the top of his head, requiring stitches.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 19 in the case.

Charging documents in the case are below.
