Police have arrested a Florida man for the murder of a 23-year-old in Richmond Hill last December.
Gerrard Edwards was near Liberty Avenue and 112th Street at about 3:30 a.m. on Dec. 22 when he was shot, cops said. He was killed after he got into a dispute with a group of men while out with some friends and was then jumped and shot several times in the chest, according to published reports.
Edwards, a Richmond Hill resident, was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
This October, police released information on a suspect wanted in the shooting, 31-year-old David Haridat.
The NYPD said on Tuesday that Haridat, a Miami resident, had been arrested and charged with Edwards’ murder.
