Second suspect arrested in Bronx murder during motorcycle sale

A second suspect was arrested this week in connection with the broad daylight murder of a man during a motorcycle sale in the Bronx, cops said.

Joan Vasquez, 32, of the Bronx, was apprehended late Wednesday afternoon and charged with murder, manslaughter, assault and criminal weapons possession in connection with the May 18 murder of 20-year-old Jefferson Hernandez, police officers said.

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 Hernandez in a black Chevrolet Trailblazer with a U-Haul flatbed trailer attached, were unharmed.
