Police Release Video of Gunman Wanted for Fatal Shooting Outside Luxury LIC Apartment Complex

Aug. 22, 2021 By Christian Murray

Police have released photos and video of a man wanted for the fatal shooting of a movie producer who was killed while sitting in his Mercedes-Benz outside a luxury Long Island City apartment building Thursday night.

The footage shows the suspect walk up nonchalantly to the victim’s Mercedes, before firing multiple shots into the vehicle at around 11:50 p.m. in front of the Jackson Park apartment complex at 21-10 Jackson Ave.

The shooter then got into a dark colored SUV operated by another individual on Queens Boulevard.

The victim, Joseph “Taheim” Bryan, 50, — the writer and producer of a recent movie starring Ice-T – was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Ice-T had some choice words for the suspect in a tweet Friday.

“MFs Killed my friend last night,” Ice-T wrote. The tweet included a photo of Bryan, alongside co-star Tobias Truvillion and rapper “Havoc.”

“I’m not in a good place behind this,” he posted. “Taheim was a GOOD dude making Positive moves. He wrote & we made the film EqualStandard together. He leaves a Wife&Daughter.Dirty MFs followed him home and Murdered him.”

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Years of deliberately ignoring black on black crime existing have lead us to this. Be thankful a cop didn’t kill him.

If laws are broken let's just change the laws and take away peoples rights. problem fixed

Mixie- why dont we just burn the constitution and have you write a new one you seem to have all the answers. I love how liberals dont enforce the law and allow criminals to run a muck then they blame guns. I ve been going to Maine all my life they have open carry laws and many people have guns. Maine has one of the lowest crime rates in the nation.

Republican is the common factor in the worst performing States

Here are the 10 unsafest US States -FBI Stats published in US News And World Report
South Carolina The 10 Safest States in the U.S. -FBI Stats published in US News And World Report:
New Hampshire
New Jersey
Rhode Island
80 % of the unsafest States have gun laws just as liberal as Maines gun laws. 70% of the safest states line NJ, CT and Mass. have some of the strictest gun laws in the nation. Funny how you ignore the liberal guns laws as a factor in almost every high crime state. Lying through omission is still lying.


So many nameless victims of gun violence occur weekly in nyc. But when a victim is a writer and producer someone famous tweets about the shooting and the media reports it.

What happened to NYC?

Until these kind of thugs get arrested and sentenced to life, no parole, the city will never be safe again.
But NYC politicians don’t care. Cuomo is too busy explaining that touching people is Ok, because mom and dad taught him. DeBlasio, well, he’s just useless, worst major ever by far. AOC will defend the shooter because he’s probably minority and Jimmy is too busy with affordable housing projects that are not good for anybody but his own political career, or so he thinks.
