Police have arrested and charged the man believed to be responsible for multiple shootings that left two men dead.
Police have been searching for 36-year-old Dane Richardson since August. They were even offering a financial reward worth up to $5,000.
After a long pursuit, Richardson walked out of the 43rd Precinct last night in handcuffs.
Richardson is accused of walking up to two brothers at the Soundview Houses on Nov. 17 and pulling out a gun. Police say he shot the 21-year-old older brother in the arm and 19-year-old Stephon Brown in the back. Brown was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Richardson is also wanted for the fatal shooting of a man outside of a building on Commonwealth Avenue on August 18. Police officials says he fatally shot 26-year-old Nestor Ventura multiple times in the chest.
Richardson is facing a slew of charges including murder in the second degree, attempted criminally negligent homicide and criminal possession of a weapon.
