Both from New Orleans, Louisiana, United States, Everett Briscoe, 41, and Dyrin “DJ” Riculfy Sr., 43, were shot in Houston, Texas, USA on August 21, 2021. The two were longtime friends and members of the Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club.
That day, Briscoe and Riculfy were vacationing in Houston with their fellow Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club members. After checking their bags at a hotel, some of them, including Briscoe and Riculfy, walked over to the Grotto Ristorante, which shares a strip mall with a boutique jeweler near the Galleria in Houston.
While the group was sitting on the restaurant patio, two men with hoodies approached, tried to rob them, opened fire and fled in a vehicle. Briscoe died at the scene while Riculfy was rushed to Ben Taub Hospital in Houston and went into a coma.
Anthony Jenkins, 21, and Frederick Jackson, 19, were named as the suspects and were arrested on August 24, 2021. On August 31, 2021, Riculfy was taken off life support.
Khalil Nelson, 19, was named as a third suspect and was arrested on September 8, 2021. He, Jenkins and Jackson were each charged with two counts of capital murder.
Jenkins has identified himself as the getaway murder. It has yet to be confirmed whether or not both Jackson and Nelson shot Briscoe and Riculfy.
A New Orleans Police Department detective, Briscoe was off-duty when he was fatally shot. Riculfy was a businessman who owned a luxury bus and tuxedo rental company.
