Westchester County District Attorney Miriam E. Rocah announced that New Rochelle residents Tyquan Carcamo and Laquan Jones were indicted for the shooting death of 20-year-old Aaliyah Waiters.

Carcamo, 20, and Jones, 21, were both indicted by a Westchester County Grand Jury for Murder in the Second Degree and Criminal Possession of a Weapon, both felonies. The defendants were arraigned on Nov. 12, 2021, and are currently being held without bail.

The defendants face a maximum sentence of 25 years to life in prison.

The shooting took place on Sept. 25, 2021, in Mount Vernon. Waiters, a Mount Vernon resident, was transported to Jacobi Hospital in the Bronx, where she died several days later.  

Mount Vernon Police arrested Carcamo and Jones on Oct. 25, 2021, following a joint investigation with the Westchester Department of Public Safety, New Rochelle Police Department, and FBI’s Westchester Safe Streets Task Force, as part of the Gun and Gang Initiative, launched by the District Attorney’s Office in August.
