NEW YORK - Authorities say they've arrested a fifth suspect in the slaying of an aide to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the hours before last year's West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn.

Kenny Bazile was arrested Thursday in Palm Desert, California. WNBC-TV reports he's accused of firing shots during a gang-related gun battle last year in which Carey Gabay was fatally shot by stray gunfire. Bazile won't be charged until he's returned to New York.

Gabay, a 43-year-old Harvard-educated lawyer, was a first deputy general counsel at the Empire State Development Corp.

Four other suspects have been arrested in the shooting.

It's unclear if Bazile has an attorney who could comment.
