Arrest made in fatal East New York shooting

Two arrests have been made in connection to a fatal shooting in East New York last December.



Police say Ajuul Manwaring and Shaquille Escalaona shot 19-year-old Aaron Parkinson.



As News 12 previously reported, Parkinson was in the back of a livery cab opposite 29 McClancy Place with an 18-year-old when they were both shot.



The livery driver took the victims to Brookdale Hospital where Parkinson was pronounced dead and the other teen was treated and released. 



Manwaring and Escalaona face second-degree murder and robbery charges.
