A New Jersey man has been arrested and charged for the fatal shooting of a 23-year-old man inside the NYCHA Queensbridge Houses development last month.

Patshawn McMitchell, 24, was arrested Thursday and charged with murder – and several other crimes – in relation to the killing of Dahmel Miller inside 40-12 Vernon Blvd. on Sept. 8, according to police.

McMitchell shot Miller in the abdomen and buttocks following a dispute over a teenage girl who police believe had a romantic involvement with both of them.

Miller, of Fort Greene, Brooklyn, was shot on the first floor of the building at around 9:25 p.m. and then stumbled up the stairs to the third-floor hallway before collapsing, cops said.

He was transferred to Cornell Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police said they arrested McMitchell in Watertown City in upstate New York – not far from the Canadian border – and brought him back to Queens.

McMitchell has been charged with murder, criminal possession of a weapon and acting in a manner injurious to a child under 17 years of age. He was also charged with menacing, criminal contempt and harassment.
