2 Suspects Arrested for Shooting and Killing NYC Man: Police

A New York City man is dead after trying to intervene on behalf of a friend in a traffic dispute with two convicted felons who have now been arrested and charged with murder, police say.

The NYPD says they've arrested a 52-year old man and a 53-year-old man, both from Queens. They were arrested and charged Thursday.

Police say the two men are charged with killing 28-year-old Noel Samuels, of Queens, who was shot in the head on May 27 on a street in South Jamaica and later died at a local hospital.

Both men are charged with murder and manslaughter, along with other charges.

One of the suspects was convicted of manslaughter in 1988 and was released on parole in 2010.
