    According to authorities, the suspect is a 25-year-old Hispanic male with a previous arrest in the city.

    “We don’t know the reason, but it seems random,” Joseph Kenny of the New York Police Department’s Detective Bureau told reporters.

    According to Kenny, the videos and testimonies collected show that the man was not looking for anyone in particular and that he parently dedicated himself to shooting different people while riding a moped.

    Upon arresting the youth, the agents recovered a 9-millimeter weon, a magazine, and ammunition.

    In addition, Police Commissioner Edward Caban reported: “It was a self-acting individual who shot four people, one of whom unfortunately died.”

    “The shooter used an illegal moped that did not have a license plate and thus moved from one location to the next,” he added while confirming that he was also responsible for previously recorded shootings.
