Another suspect nabbed in East NY fatal shooting

Posted: Updated:
EAST NEW YORK -

A man suspected of being involved in a fatal shooting in East New York has been arrested.

Police say Rahmel Briggs, 21, was among 10 suspects wanted for the killing of Tyquan Eversley.

Eversley was seen last month on surveillance footage running for his life while being chased for several blocks by the group.

The incident ended when Eversley tried to jump over a fence, but got stuck on a chain-link barbed wire fence on the other side.

Police say one man threw a rock, then another shot him five times, ultimately leading to his death. It took place between Elton and Cleveland streets on March 19.

A total of four suspects still remain at large: 23-year-old Shacore Huff, 25-year-old Rakiem Smith, 29-year-old Donaven McDay and a fourth that has not yet been identified.

Briggs faces murder and criminal possession of a weapon charges.
