A Bronx resident has been nabbed for the shooting death of a man in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City last year.
Hector Crespo, 26, was arrested Tuesday night and charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon for the Sept. 3, 2020 killing of Vickram Sewsankar, who was fatally shot on Borden Avenue near 2nd Street.
Crespo allegedly shot Sewsankar in the stomach at around 6:50 p.m. following a dispute over a parking space. The police at the time said that the shooter then fled the scene with a passenger in a gray BMW.
Sewsankar, 25, a resident of South Ozone Park in Queens, later died at New York-Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell. A temporary memorial went up after the shooting near where Sewsankar was murdered.
Crespo has one prior arrest for assault in 2018, police said. He was awaiting arraignment in Queens Criminal Court Wednesday.
Wow, they actually found him! Very well done to those responsible, my faith in the force is absolutely restored.
I was on the opposite end of the block when this kid was murdered and thought the perp got away with it.
