A suspect has been caught in broad daylight in connection with the murder of a 20-year-old man during a motorcycle sale in the Bronx, police officers said.
Manuel Reyes, 23, has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter, assault and second-degree weapons possession in connection with the killing of 20-year-old Jefferson Hernandez on Wednesday, police said late Sunday.
Hernandez, of Spring Valley, Rockland County, drove with three other men to East 144th and Exterior Streets in Mott Haven to purchase a Kawasaki motorcycle they found on Facebook Marketplace, authorities said.
He was shot in the head around 3:40 p.m. and taken to Lincoln Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police officers said.
The trio, who drove down with Reyes in a black Chevrolet Trailblazer with a U-Haul flatbed trailer attached, were unharmed.
In addition to Reyes, authorities are looking for three other people in connection with the fatal shooting.
