The police have arrested a second suspect in connection with a gang-related shooting on Roosevelt Ave that left one man dead in May.

Police arrested Isaac Martinez, 34, Wednesday after he was caught trespassing inside a Roosevelt Ave building and brought in for questioning, the NYPD said.

Martinez, who police say is homeless, has been charged with murder and gang assault stemming from the May 5th shooting that killed Jorge Manzanarez. The shooting took place on Roosevelt Ave near Whitney Avenue, police said.

Martinez and Raul Zamora, who was arrested May 16, shot Manzanarez in the chest in front of 93-12 Roosevelt Ave following an argument, according to police.

Zamora, who lives a few blocks away from where the incident took place, is facing charges of murder in the second degree and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, police said at the time of his arrest.
