BROWNSVILLE, Brooklyn — Police arrested a man on Friday in connection with a shooting that was caught on video outside a Brooklyn hotel serving as a homeless shelter, according to the NYPD.

Khalid McClean, 30, was charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon in the death of Quentin Stroman, police said Sunday.

The shooting took place on July 16 at around 8:24 p.m. on Osborn Street in Brownsville. 

Arriving officers found Stroman, 25, with a gunshot wound to the torso. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to the NYPD.

Prior to the shooting, there was a dispute inside the hotel that spilled outside, police said. 

One of the suspects ran from Stroman before they fired several shots at him, according to police. Stroman then ran as far as Pitkin Avenue, where he collapsed.

The suspects ran back inside the shelter before fleeing the scene.

Police were searching for a second suspect — Alisia Arthur, 22 — in connection with the shooting. It was unclear on Sunday if investigators were still looking for Arthur.
