NYC: MTA conductor indicted for gun trafficking said a child’s death made job harder: DA

An MTA subway conductor who was busted for smuggling firearms into Brooklyn — as gun violence surged across the city this year — callously griped that the shooting death of a 1-year-old tot was making his job harder, prosecutors alleged Thursday.

“N—-s were beefing with some n—-s that ran down on them and they didn’t know there was a 1-year-old baby in the park and they shot, they shot, they tried to run down on the n—a and the baby was out there and the baby got hit in the stomach,” MTA employee Vernal Douglas, 49, allegedly said in a wiretapped phone call with an unnamed buyer July 21.

“S–t been crazy since then.”

A few days before the call, 22-month-old Davell Gardner was gunned down in a drive-by at a cookout in a Bedford-Stuyvesant park.
