A New York City jail inmate has been charged with ordering a botched assassination that led to the stray-bullet shooting of a teenage girl.
Darrell Joe was charged with conspiracy Friday. He is among 38 men charged in gang crackdown.
Investigators say Joe tried to exact vengeance in a jailhouse dispute by ordering fellow gangsters to kill a rival's brother.
The assassin opened fire on a Bronx street. He wounded his target, but a stray shot hit Vasquez as she walked home from school.
Joe already faces attempted murder charges in an unrelated case. His lawyer's name was not immediately available.
