“Now, in particular, there are some statements where the defendant [Rosemond] spoke about acts of violence… Mr. Shargel made comments about the origin of the Chuck Phillips article, which has to do with the shooting of Tupac Shakur in 1994; in particular, the defendant has made admission that he was involved in this particular shooting,” prosecutor Soumya Dayananda said, according to the official transcripts.
Rosemand’s confession to his part in the incident came shortly after one of his associate, Dexter Isaac, confesses to being the ring leader in the shooting.
