NEW YORK (AP) - The NYPD has arrested and charged two men in connection with a fatal shooting near New York’s Penn Station earlier this month.

Police on Monday identified the suspects as 23-year-old Francisco Alsina and 27-year-old Vincent Arcona, both of Long Island.

Alsina faces charges of murder, attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

Police charged Arcona with tampering with physical evidence and criminal possession of a controlled substance.

It wasn’t immediately clear if they had attorneys who could comment on the charges.

Three men were shot on Nov. 9, one fatally, at a subway entrance near Penn Station following a confrontation.

Police say the three victims were at a nearby McDonald’s when the gunman engaged them in a brief conversation, left the restaurant and then waited for them to exit.
