Reputed gang member scheduled to be tried for murder

LAWRENCEVILLE -- A reputed gang member is scheduled to stand trial this week for the drug-fueled murder of 19-year-old Angelo Larocca.

Brandon "Stunna" Mosley -- 18 years old at the time of his arrest in July 2011 -- is accused of shooting Larocca during a believed drug-deal-gone-bad at a Lilburn apartment complex on June 28, 2011. He has been charged and indicted on counts of murder, felony murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault, gang activity and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Mosley was arrested just two weeks after an off-duty police officer patrolling The Columns at Paxton apartments stumbled upon Larocca's body in a breezeway. Larocca and three friends are believed to have come to the complex near the intersection of U.S. Highway 78 and Killian Hill Road to complete a drug transaction.

Witnesses reported hearing multiple gunshots prior to the police officer's discovery.

Jail records list Mosley as a resident of the apartment complex. Authorities believe he is affiliated with the "ABT" gang.

Another teenager, Hunter Mason Davis, has also been charged with Larocca's murder. Davis allegedly brokered the drug deal and witnessed the shooting.

He has yet to face trial.

Mosley's case is scheduled to be heard this week in front of Gwinnett County Superior Court Judge Warren Davis.
