From our colleagues at NY1:

Police have made an arrest in connection with the deadly shooting of an aide to Governor Andrew Cuomo ahead of last year’s West Indian Day Parade in New York.

The NYPD says Micah Alleyne, 24, of Brooklyn was arraigned Friday on murder, reckless endangerment and weapons possession. Carey Gabay was shot in the head last September during J’ouvert celebrations.

He died more than week after the incident.

Gabay served as assistant counsel to the governor and later the First Deputy Counsel of the Economic Development Corporation.

Gabay’s death spurred Cuomo to reignite the issue of gun control, especially the flow of illegal firearms into New York from other states.

Updated: Cuomo issued a statement in response to the arrest.

“Carey Gabay was an exemplary public servant who lost his life in a senseless tragedy. Today’s arrest is a major step forward in the pursuit of justice for Carey’s family and loved ones,” Cuomo said. “I commend the investigators and prosecutors for their tireless efforts to ensure those responsible for Carey’s death are held fully accountable for their actions.”
