Police arrested a man for allegedly shooting and killing a woman and her pit bull as they walked down a Brooklyn street.
Namel Colon was arrested Tuesday and the 36-year-old faces murder and gun charges for the Jan. 2 shooting in Bedford-Stuyvesant that claimed Jennifer Ynoa’s life.
New York City police said Ynoa, also 36, was walking her dog near Dekalb and Franklin Avenue before 9:45 p.m. when surveillance video showed a gunman chased her to a cigar shop before opening fire.
Another camera angle on the street captured the shooter’s escape into a red four-door sedan parked on the street. He jumped into the driver’s seat and left.
Ynoa, who lived on the block where the shots rang out, was shot in the head and transported to Brooklyn Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. His dog, Blue, died at the scene, police said.
However, police sources said they do not believe Ynoa was the intended target of the shooting.
