Trever J. Trammell police say is a member of the Dayton View Hustlers, is one of three men connected to the slaying of Little Sam Ouqessou

01:31 |

Arrested is Trever J. Trammell, 18, on federal charges of using a firearm in a violent crime and violating the Hobbs Act, related to interstate commerce.Trammell, who Dayton police say is a member of the Dayton View Hustlers, is one of three men connected to the slaying. Two others are in custody and await formal charges.
The slaying of Ouqessou, 33, shot during an attempted robbery Aug. 12, prompted an outpouring of community grief. A Moroccan immigrant known as Little Sam, Ouqessou was in his second year of working at the drive-through convenience store on Prescott Avenue just east of Gettysburg Avenue.Ouqessou was described by his employer as "an honest guy. Hard worker. Never drank, never smoked."The arrest and federal indictment is the most recent action stemming from the November launch of a campaign targeting gang and other criminal group firearm violence coordinated by Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl. A Dayton Daily News series published Feb. 17 and 18 found assaults, drug trafficking, shootings and homicides connected to more than a dozen local street gangs.Dayton Lt. Patrick Welsh, commander of the Central Investigations Bureau, credited the Safe Streets Task Force, a multi-agency group, FBI agents and city homicide detectives with cracking the case.Federal agents provided insight into the Dayton View Hustlers and Greenwich Village Clique gang, members of which are also implicated, Welsh said."It was a lengthy, time-consuming, and manpower-intensive effort to solve it," he said. Trammell was arrested in the 1700 block of West Grand Avenue.Fred Alverson, spokesman for the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, said the charges in the case "are the fruit of a joint effort to try to curb gun and gang violence in Dayton neighborhoods."If convicted, Trammell could be imprisoned from 10 years to life on the firearm charge and a maximum of 20 years on the Hobbs Act charge.
