A second suspect has been arrested in connection with the killing of a 29-year-old man in the Bronx in broad daylight earlier this month, authorities said.

Jimenez, of Brooklyn, was standing on Walton Avenue near East 183rd Street in Fordham Heights when three men got out of a black Volkswagen and approached him, police said.

One of them then opened fire, hitting the man in the head, authorities said.

Jimenez was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police officers said.

A 15-year-old boy was also caught in connection with the deadly shooting last week, police said.
