NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a New York City man has been arrested on charges alleging he fatally shot another man at a public housing complex in Brooklyn.

The New York Police Department said Saturday that 21-year-old Leonaldo Parrado was arrested on murder and weapons possession charges.

Authorities allege he fatally shot 20-year-old Kevin Colon on Feb. 19.

Officers found Colon with a gunshot wound to the torso when they responded to a 911 call at the Whitman Houses in Fort Greene.

Colon was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

It was not immediately clear whether Parrado had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
