A man was arrested in the shooting death of a 15-year-old boy in Brooklyn on Tuesday, the NYPD said.
Martial C. Amilcar, 20, is accused of fatally shooting Samuel Joseph in the head, torso and arm on Feb. 22 at his apartment building on Flatbush Avenue, between Rogers Avenue and East 26th Street, in Flatbush.
Amilcar was identified with the help of the public after police released surveillance footage of two suspects, NYPD Chief of Investigations William Aubry said at a news conference Monday. Police were still looking for the second suspect.
The reason for the shooting was under investigation, but Aubry said Amilcar had “indicated that he was looking for the older brother” of Joseph prior to the shooting.
Amilcar was charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
