UPS driver gunned down for taking too long to parallel park; shooter pleads guilty to attempted murder

NYC gunman was riding in stolen Mercedes-Benz at the time, prosecutors say

A New York City man has pleaded guilty to charges for shooting a United Parcel Service worker while riding passenger in a stolen Mercedes-Benz, after the deliveryman took too long to parallel park his vehicle, officials announced.

Jahsheen Osbourne, a 21-year-old from Queens, pleaded guilty to attempted murder, among other charges, for the January 2020 "unprovoked shooting," Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz’s office said in a press release Thursday.

Osbourne was sitting passenger inside the stolen car around 3:30 p.m. on Jan. 14, 2020 when he allegedly grew irate that the delivery man was taking too long to park, Katz said.

"The worker was attempting to reverse and park the UPS truck when a driver in a white Mercedes began honking the car horn objecting to the truck preventing traffic from going forward," the release states. "The defendant, who was a passenger in the Mercedes, began to yell at the delivery worker and a verbal dispute ensued. As the Mercedes maneuvered pass the UPS truck, the defendant pulled out a black gun and shot the victim in the stomach."

The victim was rushed to a local hospital and needed surgery for extensive internal damage. Meanwhile, Osbourne was also charged separately for the stolen Mercedes, Katz said.
