The 33-year-old Gravesend man found guilty in the 2013 Marlboro Houses shooting that left one man wounded and another dead has been sentenced to 40 years to life in prison, according to District Attorney Kenneth Tompson.

As we reported, Tremaine Holmes, who resided in the housing project, was convicted of second-degree murder and second-degree attempted murder in December after trial revealed that he fired multiple shots at point blank range on August 15, 2013, hitting and killing neighbor Perice Brown and also striking Taleeb Maxime.

“This defendant engaged in senseless gun violence and now deserves to spend many years behind bars for the death and suffering he caused,” said Thomson.

Brown died from his injuries and Maxime suffered a gunshot wound to his arm. The defendant and Brown lived in the same building and knew each other. The defendant was apprehended in Binghamton, NY on October 15, 2013.

  1. All of them were lowlife crack dealers who contributed to the demise of not only their own people living in the Projects, but ruined the lives of the families of those addicted to their crack. Tremain Aka “Roc”, Perice Aka “Greeneyes”, and Taleeb all deserve what they got. Besides selling crack, they commit assault, robbery, and extortion on behalf of their gangs.
