NEW YORK (AP) - The NYPD has arrested a suspect in 1 of 2 fatal stabbings in Brooklyn near the route where the West Indian American Day Parade had taken place.
The separate incidents took place after the parade along Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights had ended Monday.
Gabriel Hernandez of Brooklyn was arrested and charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon in connection with the fatal stabbing of a 26-year-old man on St. John's Place.
It wasn't immediately known if the 21-year-old suspect had a lawyer.
The victim's name was withheld pending family notification.
In the second incident, a 27-year-old man identified as Leandre Mallinckrodt, of Monroe, N.Y., was killed at Eastern Parkway and Bedford Avenue. The investigation is continuing.
Police said both victims were stabbed in the neck.
