Police have arrested the man who allegedly shot and killed a visitor from Virginia, back on May 1st, according to an NYPD report.
“Donta King, 24, was nabbed in Wilkes-Barre Township, Pennsylvania, on Aug. 1 — exactly three months after the afternoon slaying of Ronald Thomas, 27, who was shot in the head while sitting in a white Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 near West 102nd Street and Amsterdam Avenue, cops said,” according to the New York Post.
King was charged with Murder, Assault, Reckless Endangerment, and Criminal Use of a Firearm, the police report said.
This is the only murder committed on the Upper West Side so far this year.
