Cops arrested a man in connection to a fatal stabbing that killed a man in Brooklyn back in February.

On Dec. 14, police arrested Brooklyn resident Mamadou Barry, 31, in connection to the stabbing of 19-year-old Mamadou Bah, also of Brooklyn. He was charged with one count of Murder 2.

Authorities say that at 8 p.m. on Feb. 18, officers responded to a 911 call regarding a man stabbed inside a barber shop located at 1916 Church Avenue. Upon their arrival, officers found Bah with a stab wound to his torso.

EMS responded to the location and took Bah to NYC Health & Hospitals/Kings County, where he was later pronounced dead. No weapons were recovered at the scene. Barry was arrested following an ogoing investigation.

At this time, it is believed that Bah might have spilled a drink on Barry at the barber shop prior to the incident, which led to the dispute. However, the exact motive is still under investigation.
