Three alleged suspects tied to a drive-by shooting in Washington Heights last month that left an innocent bystander dead were nabbed by police on Wednesday.
Reaham Steed, 23, Jonadel Lakard, 22, and Kelwin Sanchez, 19, were marched out of the 33rd Precinct stationhouse in shackles by detectives on June 7 for their alleged roles in the killing of 66-year-old Reda Girgis on May 23.
The trio are purportedly members of the 200 EOD gang, according to a police source familiar with the investigation.
Girgis, an Egyptian father, was in town to visit his son when he was shot in the head outside a deli on West 162nd Street and Broadway at about 7:11 p.m. on May 23. Police said the fatal shot was fired by a gunman inside a nearby grey Audi SUV.
Girgis was rushed to NYC Health and Hospitals/Metropolitan Hospital but was pronounced dead. Police do not believe he was the intended target however they say the perpetrators showed little regard for life as they fired into a crowded street that evening.
NYPD detectives were able to track all three men down after piecing together extensive video surveillance.
Steed and Lakard hail from Inwood while Sanchez, the youngest of the three, comes from Yonkers. The men did not comment on their alleged crimes while being walked out of the 33rd Precinct Wednesday.
Raheam and Lakard, who live at the same address but whose relationship is unclear, are charged with murder, assault, criminal possession of a weapon, and criminal possession of a firearm — while Sanchez is charged with murder, assault, and criminal possession of a weapon.
