Man, 24, arrested in Brooklyn party shooting that injured 9
Police have arrested a 24-year-old man in connection with the shooting at a Brooklyn house party this past weekend that wounded nine people.
Tyrone Brown, of Brooklyn, has been charged with attempted murder, assault, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment.
The shooting erupted shortly before 1 a.m. on Sunday on East 52nd Street in East Flatbush, police said.
The nine victims were treated for various injuries, including gunshot wounds to the calf, foot, ankle, back and thigh. No one was killed.
Officers apprehended Brown on Tuesday after a Port Authority officer spotted the suspect in a white Nissan Altima near the Holland Tunnel in Jersey City around 4 p.m., sources told The Daily News.
Port Authority officers were asked to keep an eye out for Brown because he uses the tunnel daily, The News reports.
The officer followed Brown through the toll booth. Port Authority police and a Port Authority Emergency Service Unit truck then pulled alongside Brown’s car and arrested him once he reached Manhattan.
Cops said on Sunday that the shooting started after a person was either kicked out of the party or denied entry to the party.
Police previously released descriptions of two men wanted for questioning in connection to the shooting.
