Suspect cuffed for deadly Harlem shooting six months later

Six months later, the suspect in a fatal Harlem shooting is apprehended

Police apprehended a suspect in the shooting death of a 26-year-old man in Harlem earlier this year.

According to the investigation, on May 17, 36-year-old Arthur Hines approached the victim near 232 E. 116 Street and shot him in the chest.

At roughly 1:49 p.m., paramedics arrived on the scene and discovered the bloodied victim, Isaiah Brown, and took him to NYC Health + Hospitals/Harlem, where physicians pronounced him dead.

Meanwhile, the culprit escaped capture for several months until Sunday night, when NYPD officers slapped Hines, a Bronx resident, with handcuffs.

Hines has been charged with first-degree murder. The motive for the homicide was not revealed by police.

According to the most recent NYPD figures, there have been 368 homicides on the streets of the five boroughs so far this year, a significant decrease from the 402 killings during the same era last year.
