An arrest has been made more than two years after the shooting death of a 22-year-old Long Island man in Jamaica, police said.
Christian Euton was gunned down at 156th Street and 111th Avenue just after 11 p.m. on June 13, 2012, cops said.
The Valley Stream resident and LaGuardia Community College student had gotten out of his car to check for damage after running over a pothole when he was shot, relatives and police told Newsday at the time. His brother, who was in the car, told family that he saw two groups arguing nearby. One man in the group opened fire, and his brother was struck twice in the torso.
Lamell Ford, 33, of Jamaica, is now facing charges of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon in Euton’s death, police said.
