Woman stabbed to death by boyfriend in Edgemere high-rise

A woman was stabbed to death, allegedly by her boyfriend in the high rise building at 333 Beach 32 Street early on Sunday morning.

There was another homicide in the building, this one in January of 2016. Again, there was a boyfriend and family involved in the murder.

On Sunday, police responded to a 911 call of a female stabbed inside of the high-rise building at 333 Beach 32 Street in Wavecrest. Upon arrival, police observed a 51-year-old female with numerous stab wounds to the neck and chest, unconscious and unresponsive.

The woman was later identified by police as Monet Franklin, who lived in the apartment. Her assailant was identified as Jonnie Jones, 42, who was picked up by police shortly after the crime at the Beach 35 Street A-Line subway station. Police sources say that his hands were bleeding and he had an injured eye. He received medical attention at the scene shortly after being taken into custody by local police.

 EMS also responded and pronounced Franklin deceased at the scene. Her 74-year-old mother, Marie Franklin, who tried to stop Jones from stabbing her daughter, was transported to Jamaica Hospital with a laceration to the left hand. She is listed in stable condition although her wounds required surgery.

The knife allegedly used by Jones was recovered at the scene.

Jones was charged in Queens Criminal Court on counts of murder in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree.


Far Rockaway man dead in Pennsylvania public housing homicide


A Far Rockaway man was shot and killed in this public housing complex in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania last weekend.

A Far Rockaway man was shot and killed inside a crime-ridden Pennsylvania housing complex, Luzerne County officials said on Monday, declaring the death a homicide.

The county coroner’s office identified the victim as Victor Grandy, 32, of Far Rockaway, who died of a gunshot wound to the chest area.

Wilks-Barre police officials said that at 8 p.m. Sunday, officers responded to the area of 300 Parkview Circle for a report of a suspected shooting victim. Upon arrival, officers found one male victim suffering from a suspected gunshot wound to the torso.

Paramedics who responded declared Grandy dead on arrival, according to police.

Members of the Pennsylvania State Police Forensic Services Unit, the Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office and the Wilkes-Barre City Police Department’s Detective Division initiated an investigation at the scene.

Officials say the investigation revealed the victim was involved in a verbal argument with one or more other men. That argument escalated into one of the men pulling out a firearm and shooting the victim, according to police.

Police said it was determined that several people were in the area at the time of the shooting. Police are asking anyone who may have seen what happened to contact the Wilkes-Barre City Police Department’s Detective Division.

According to published reports in the local newspaper, the last homicide at Sherman Hills took place on Nov. 11, 2013. Kenneth Evans, III, 21, was convicted of first-degree murder in the death of Shantique Goodson, 27, following that shooting.

Although 2015 passed with a homicide at Sherman Hills, it was not, by far, a crime-free area that year. Several shootings brought police and media to the complex frequently.

Experts and residents said they believed that most crime there was drug related, with the police department and Luzerne County District Attorney’s Office voicing their commitment to reducing drug use within the complex and the city.


Facts emerge in Edgemere double shooting, homicide

Tyquan Long

Tyquan Long is wanted for the double shooting homicide in Edgemere on Wednesday morning. Sources say he shot and killed his girlfriend and then shot the mother of the man he suspected of dallying with hid girlfriend in the hand on the way out of the building.

Police officers, detectives and EMTs outside 333 Beach 32 Street after the double shooting. One woman was declared dead on the scene, the other was transported to St. John’s Episcopal Hospital with a hand wound.

The genesis of the Edgemere double shooting homicide is beginning to clarify nearly 12 hours after the event first began.

According to a New York Post Story published on line Wednesday night, police sources told the paper that Tyquan Long, 29, a jealous lover, went on a bloody rampage Wednesday, killing his girlfriend in her Edgemere apartment and then shooting another woman in the hand in the lobby of the same building, because he suspected his girlfriend was sleeping with someone else and the woman in the lobby was that person’s mother.

Long, 29, allegedly shot girlfriend Joann Gravette, 36, in the stomach and left her dying on the floor of Apartment 11A inside 330 Beach 32 Street (known locally as the Russian Towers) at around 11 a.m., according to police sources.

The gunman’s jealous rage allegedly continued as he stalked down into the lobby of the building and fired several more shots at the 51-year-old mother of his girlfriend’s suspected lover, striking her in the hand, sources said.

The wounded woman, identified as Barbara Romano, was taken to St. John’s Hospital in stable condition.

“My mom’s going to be okay,” Romano’s daughter Kimberly Alicea told Post reporters. “She said he shot three or four times. She dove behind the desk, the security desk. Then she crawled into the boiler room which is next door and called the police.”

The fight started when Long confronted his girlfriend and accused her of sleeping with another man who lives in the building, sources said.

Neighbors told reporters that the two had a stormy relationship.

“She was getting scared of him,” Alicea said.

“The relationship was becoming abusive and she didn’t know what to do.”

Gravette, the girlfriend, was pronounced dead at the scene after detectives, going through the building looking for Long, found her body inside the apartment.

Romano’s son, Brian Romano, was taken into custody outside the building on what cops said were “charges unrelated to the shooting.”

Victim's son

Police arrested Brian Romano, the son of Barbara Romano, who had been shot in the hand earlier in the day. Sources say that the charges against Romano are unrelated to the shooting, but it was unclear as to what the charges are.

Police are looking for Tyquan Long, a black male in his 30’s in connection with the shooting of two women at an Edgemere housing complex on Wednesday morning, one of them proclaimed dead at the scene while the other was shot in the hand and is in stable condition at St. John’s Episcopal Hospital.

According to Channel 7 news, Long shot his still-unidentified girlfriend, 36, in the torso, killing her, because he believed that she was cheating on her with another man.

According to police sources at the scene, another woman and her son, also residents in the building, tried to interfere and an argument ensued.

The woman, later identified at Barbara Romano, was shot once in the hand during the argument. Her son, Brian Romano, who was unharmed, was later arrested by police on charges unrelated to the shooting. Police declined to comment on his arrest.

Responding to a call of a woman shot, police found Romano in the lobby of 333 Beach 32 Street, one of the buildings in the two-building high-rise housing complex that locals call “Russian Towers,” because of the large number of Russian immigrants who live there shortly after 11 a.m..

About two hours later, at 12:55 p.m., detectives searching the building for the shooter, found the second shooting victim dead in Apartment 11A.

Around 2:05 p.m., police officials on the scene were notified that a man had called the 103 Precinct in Jamaica, telling the desk sergeant that he had shot a woman in Far Rockaway before hanging up. Detectives from the 101 Precinct in Far Rockaway left the crime scene for Jamaica, but it is unclear whether the call was genuine or has led to an arrest.
