THE BRONX — “A savage” is how one member of the NYPD’s Bronx Homicide Unit is describing the alleged gunman they picked up Thursday morning at his probation meeting across the city in Brooklyn.

The alleged shooter arrested for the murder of an army veteran in the Bronx last winter.

PIX11 News was the only media outlet when Carlos Velez was hauled into the 47th Precinct in the Bronx.

Velez, who is on federal probation, was wanted by the NYPD, the Bronx’s DA office and U.S. Marshals for allegedly gunning down Army veteran Jason Allwood in the Wakefield section of the Bronx on March 13th.

Law enforcement says that Velez’s brother was attacked and beaten at a bar but it was Allwood who broke up the fight and saved him.

When word hit the streets, cops say that Velez tracked down Allwood minutes later and shot him thinking that the Army vet was the assailant who beat up his brother.

Velez did not have much to say while being escorted into the 47th Precinct instead spitting on PIX11 News reporter Mario Diaz and cursing at him.

The NYPD tells PIX11 News that Velez, 39,  is a career criminal with a lengthy rap sheet.

Law enforcement also arrested two other men Thursday afternoon in connection with the murder.
