Police have arrested another suspect in connection with the death of a 21-year-old man they say was hunted down "like an animal" before he was shot to death.
Anthony Frazier, 37, of Pennsylvania, has been arrested and charged with murder, manslaughter, gang assault, assault, conspiracy and criminal possession of a weapon in connection with the death of Tyquan Eversley, the NYPD said Wednesday.
Eversley was shot to death in broad daylight behind a home on Elton Street in East New York on March 19, police said.
Police have already arrested Alfred Crooks, 22, Frank Cook, 33, Leroy Dunn, 35, Rahmel Briggs, 29, and Michael Reid, 25, all of Brooklyn, in connection with Eversley's death.
Three other suspects, Donaven McDay, Shacore Huff and Rakiem Smith, are still at large, according to NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea.
Police say a group of gang members chased Eversley down the streets and through at least one backyard before shooting him five times, killing him.
A series of surveillance videos show the suspects waving their guns as they run down a sidewalk, past a home, through an alleyway and into a backyard while chasing him.
Eversley tries to hop a fence behind a home, but gets slowed down by barbed wire, video shows. That’s when his attackers catch up to him and shoot him, according to police.
“Ultimately, he’s cornered like an animal, in the back of a private residence, where he’s shot multiple times,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said at a press conference after Eversley's death. “This was difficult to watch for a lot of different reasons.”
Attorney information for the suspects wasn't immediately available.
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
