NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (AP) - A suburban New York man is accused of fatally shooting an Iona College student over the weekend.

Police say 19-year-old Stivenson Desir was arraigned Monday in New Rochelle on a second-degree murder charge in the slaying of Brandon Lawrence.

Authorities say officers responded to a New Rochelle park just before 3:30 a.m. on Sunday for reports of gunshots and found Lawrence bleeding on the ground in a baseball field. The Yonkers man was pronounced dead at the scene.

It’s unclear if Desir has an attorney who could comment on the charges.

Desir is being held and is due back in court on April 11.
