The Long Island resident was last seen with a hooded sweater walking up to the group of three men at the fast food restaurant on 34th Street and Eighth Avenue at around 6 a.m.

The two groups got into a fight that Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce told reporters earlier was possibly related to drugs before they broke off.

Arcona and an unidentified second man allegedly waited outside the 34th Street train station as the three victims walked into the station.

Police were unable to say what role Arcona might have had in the shooting, but said four shots were fired in total at the three men.

Paramedics pronounced Angel Quinones, 43, dead at the scene from a gunshot wound to his neck.

The two men with Quinones — William Lamboy, 45, and Eddie Torres, 48 — were rushed to Bellevue Hospital Center. Lamboy was shot in his neck and stomach, while Torrest was recovering from a gunshot to his leg.

NYPD asks that anyone with information about the shooting or Arcona’s whereabouts confidentially call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS or text their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.
