Gang member found guilty in '11 robbery-murder

LAWRENCEVILLE -- It took only a brief deliberation for a Gwinnett jury to find Brandon "Stunna" Mosley guilty of murder.

Mosley, a 19-year-old member of the "ABT" gang, was recently found guilty on seven charges related to the robbery-related killing of Angelo Larocca in June 2011. A Gwinnett County jury took only an hour and 40 minutes to convict him of murder, armed robbery, aggravated assault, and two counts apiece of felony murder and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, Kathye Worthey of the district attorney's office told the Daily Post.

Mosley is scheduled for sentencing on Jan. 11, Worthey said. The death penalty was not sought in the case, which was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Mike Morrison.

The charges stemmed from the shooting death of Larocca, 19, who was lured to The Columns at Paxton apartments in Lilburn on June 28, 2011 under the guise of a drug deal. The Loganville resident and New York native reportedly met Mosley and Hunter Mason Davis in a breezeway, where he was shot and killed.

Authorities have said Mosley and Davis, who is accused of brokering the meeting, had no intention of selling Larocca drugs but planned only to rob him.

Davis has yet to go to trial, but officials expect that case to be heard in the coming months.
