Detectives slapped the cuffs on a Richmond Hill man Friday night for fatally shooting a 70-year-old woman at her Jamaica home last month.
Police said Julian Douglas, 22, of 131st Street, faces second-degree murder and weapons possession charges for the March 31 killing of Leta Webb at her 119th Avenue home.
According to published reports, Webb answered a knock at her front door at about 1:40 a.m. that morning and, after opening it, was shot in the head and left arm.
Officers from the 113th Precinct and EMS units responded to the scene. Webb was pronounced dead later that morning at Jamaica Hospital.
Police reportedly believe that Webb was not the intended target of the shooting and that the incident may have been gang-related.
