Dwayne Hilton Ordered Held in Connection with Murder of Mico Briscoe

Dwayne Hilton appeared in court today where Judge Karen Howze ordered him held in connection with the November 2011 shooting death of 18-year-old Mico Briscoe.

According to charging documents, detectives used surveillance video, CCTV cameras, and jailhouse calls to conclude that Hilton, also known as Wayne-Wayne, was involved in the murder.

According to the documents, on Nov, 26, 2011, Briscoe and four surviving victims were shot outside a Circle 7 Express store located in the 1200 block of Mt. Olivet Road Northeast.

Police believe that the shooting was the result of ongoing feud between two rival crews: The “E Street Bangaz” and the “Trinidad Crew.” Hilton is believed to be a member of the “E Street Bangaz,” the documents say.

Briscoe and the other victims all grew up in the Trinidad neighborhood, and detectives believe they are “loosely affiliated” with the Trinidad Crew, according to the documents.

According to the documents, surveillance video from near the crime scene shows a gold Mitsubishi Galant circling the 1200 block of Mt. Olivet Road NE shortly after midnight on Nov. 26. Detectives believe the occupants of the vehicle were circling to observe those who would eventually be shot.

Soon after, two black men are seen running in Briscoe’s direction. One man is seen pulling something down over his face and appears to be carrying a gun in his right hand. Another man appears to be holding something in his left hand.

The video then shows Briscoe and those he was with ducking for cover. Briscoe runs eastbound on Mt. Olivet Road and out of sight of the camera. The two men run away from the direction of the shooting and jump into the Galant, which was in a nearby parking lot. The vehicle is driven away and turns eastbound on Mt. Olivet, according to arrest documents.

Briscoe was found in the 1200 block of Simms Place Northeast, which is in the rear of where the shooting is believed to have happened. He was transported to the hospital where he died three hours later from two gunshot wounds to his upper torso.

Nineteen 9mm expended cartridge casings were collected from the scene of the incident; technicians confirmed that the casings were fired from two separate guns, charging documents say.

On January 29, 2012, police officers spotted the gold Galant parked in the 400 block of 20th Street Northeast. A vehicle registration check determined that Hilton’s mother owned the vehicle in November 2011.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 1.

Arrest documents are below.
