BAY RIDGE -

Police have arrested a second suspect in connection to a slaying that happened earlier this month in Bay Ridge.

Eric Cruz is facing charges of murder, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon for his alleged role in the death of Grei Frasheri.

On Sept. 7, officials responded to a call about an assault and found Frasheri on the sidewalk, unconscious and unresponsive.

Frasheri had a gunshot wound in the neck and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Last week, police charged 35-year-old Anthony Valenti with attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment in connection to Frasheri's death.
