BROWNSVILLE, Brooklyn — Police said Wednesday that a man has been arrested in connection with a fatal double shooting in Brooklyn nearly a month ago.

According to the NYPD, Brooklyn man Hason Rink, 41, was arrested Tuesday around 4:30 p.m. He is expected to be charged with murder, attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

Back on July 2, around 6:45 p.m., police responded to a 911 call for a person shot in front of 41 New Lots Avenue in the Brownsville section of the borough.

A man, identified as 20-year-old Deondraye Moore of Brooklyn, had been shot in the head and was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital, police said.

Officials said a 36-year-old woman was struck by bullets in the arm and torso and rushed to a local hospital. She suffered serious injuries but survived.

The NYPD said the investigation remains ongoing.

Rink was also hit with charges Tuesday in connection with a man who was fatally shot in the face in Crown Heights on July 24.
