ELMHURST, Queens — An arrest was made in connection to the fatal shooting of a teen outside a Queens bar earlier this month.
Dennis Vassilenko, 18, was arrested Thursday and faces charges of murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
It happened on July 7 outside the Sabor Latino Restaurant and Bar on 40th Road in Elmhurst, officials said.
Authorities were called to the location around 4:25 p.m. when they discovered Eduardo Hernandez, 17, with gunshot wounds to his torso.
He was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police early Thursday said the victim had a BB gun in his possession when he was shot.
Authorities believe the fatal shooting was somehow narcotics related.
