Hudson Valley Man Indicted in Ambush Shooting Murder
A Hudson Valley man was indicted in an alleged ambush shooting that killed a man in April.
Michael Djukic, 20, of White Plains arraigned in Westchester County Court on an indictment charging him with 2nd-degree criminal possession of a weapon, 2nd-degree criminal facilitation, tampering with physical evidence, and 2nd-degree hindering prosecution, all felonies.
On April 17, 2016 in White Plains, Djukic was driving a Chrysler Pacifica with Aaron George. According to the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office, George got out of the car near 91 North Kensico Avenue. George allegedly approached Dominique Hospie and fired a handgun multiple times, hitting Hospie.
George then ran back to the car where Djukic was waiting and the two drove off.
Hospie was taken to Westchester Medical Center with gunshot wounds to the hand and back. He later died in surgery.
Djukic plead not guilty. Bail was set at $200,000 cash or bond. He’s due back in court on June 1.
George is scheduled to be arraigned on the indictment on Friday.
