AUGUSTA, Maine — A New York City man arrested in Maine on Sunday is being sent back to New York to face charges in connection with a June 30 shooting that injured nine people in the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn, according to Maine State Police.
Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said Tuesday that state police Cpl. Jason Madore arrested Parris Peterson-Lloyd on the Maine Turnpike in Litchfield after stopping a vehicle for speeding.
The shooting happened at a house party around 1 a.m. June 30. Four men and five women — all younger than 45 — were injured and taken to four different hospitals, according to CNN. Their injuries weren’t believed to be life-threatening.
Police told media that the shooting likely occurred because the suspects were told to leave or refused entry to the party.
NYPD detectives arrived in Maine on Monday to process paperwork needed to bring Peterson-Lloyd back to New York with them. Peterson-Lloyd was scheduled to be taken back to New York after he appeared in an Augusta courtroom Tuesday morning.
Madore also arrested a second man in the car, Tyrone Sanders, 24, who is from the Bronx, because he refused to give his name, according to McCausland. Sanders was not wanted in connection with last month’s shootings. Both men were held at Kennebec County Jail.
The New York Post reported earlier this month that NYPD arrested Tyrone Browne and charged him with attempted murder, assault, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment in connection with the house party.
