Maine law enforcement officials say a man wanted in connection with the shooting that injured nine people in Brooklyn will be extradited to face charges.
Officials said 25-year-old Parris Peterson-Lloyd of the Bronx was arrested early Sunday on the Maine Turnpike in Litchfield. NYPD detectives arrived in Maine Monday to begin processing Peterson-Lloyd's return to New York; he waived extradition on Tuesday.
Police say Peterson-Lloyd and another man already in custody, 24-year-old Tyrone Brown, are suspects in a June 30 shooting in the Flatbush section. Police believe the gunfire erupted after someone was asked to leave a party or was not allowed in. The victims suffered a range of minor injuries.
In Maine, Peterson-Lloyd was a passenger in a car that was pulled over by a trooper. There were two others in the car; neither was charged in the connection with the shooting.
