According to New York’s Daily News, 31-year-old Shakia Jackson told police that “she and the other adults were only playing” and that the children, who range in age from 1 to 12 years, “wanted to be shot” with BB guns.

In one instance, the three male defendants held down one of the mothers and forced the 2-year-old’s genitals into her mouth. The children were subject to assault including punches and slaps and were thrown over a banister and shot with the guns.
In addition to Jackson, charges were filed against Danielle Hammond, 22; Mark Isom, 22; Daryl Carter, 24; and William Wade, 23. The 1-year-old child belonged to Hammond. The remaining four children, the youngest of whom was 2, were Jackson’s.
