Patillo plead guilty to second-degree murder and attempted murder in the 2012 death of Jonathan Lewis (pictured above). At the time, Lewis was participating in a memorial for a childhood friend who’d been killed the year prior.

Patillo shot Lewis in his chest and neck with a .38 caliber gun. He then proceeded to fire several more shots in to the air before escaping the scene.

In 2011, Lewis’ friend, Michael Ikoli (pictured below), was gunned down outside his Webster Avenue home. According to the New York Times, Ikoli was a well-known person in the area, despite having been jailed on Rikers Island from 2004 to 2009. Speaking after he was acquitted of his charges, Ikoli said, “I lost my whole teenage and childhood for something I didn’t do.”

According to Ikoli’s lawyer, he had spent time in Maryland after his release before returning to the Bronx, sustaining himself off money he had acquired from two lawsuits.

Ikoli’s sister said that she doesn’t believe his murder is connected to Lewis’. “It is not a revenge thing,” the woman said. “They are not linked.”

Patillo will be sentenced on May 19tth, where he could potentially receive anywhere from 30 years to life behind bars.
