Several people in custody for ‘hunting,’ gunning down 21-year-old man in Brooklyn

EAST NEW YORK, Brooklyn — Three people were arrested and charged Tuesday in connection with the death of a dad who was hunted through the streets of Brooklyn and killed

Tyquan Eversley

Michael Reid, 25, was already arrested and charged with murder in the March 19 death of Tyquan Eversley. Police busted Alfred Crooks, 22; Frank Cook, 33 and Leroy Dunn, 35, on Tuesday. Crooks was charged with murder. Cook and Dunn were hit with charges for manslaughter and gang assault.

"There has been a significant amount of progress in that case," NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said.

Many in the community called in tips on the case, he said.

Video of the group chasing and cornering Eversley shocked many in the community.

"I was disgusted, quite frankly, by what I saw - the lack of regard for human life," Shea said.

Police identified two other men they're looking for as Donaven McDay, 29 and Shacore Huff, 24.
