FLATBUSH -

A Sunset Park man is under arrest in connection to the shooting death of a man in Flatbush.

Jorge Luna, 18, is facing murder charges after police say he shot and killed Arif Yeakub.

Police say the shooting was a possible drug deal gone bad that took place at 550 Ocean Ave. on June 7. They say Luna and another man went to the building to sell the victim drugs, but when he didn't want to go through with the deal, he was pistol whipped and shot.

Authorities are still searching for a second suspect who they say was seen running from the building in a red hooded sweatshirt.

Another man who was at the apartment was slashed, but was treated and released from the hospital.
