UPDATE: Police Identify Suspect Arrested in Connection to Bay Ridge Murder

Cops have arrested a suspect in connection with the murder of a man in Bay Ridge a week and a half ago.

On Monday, September 17 at around 12:30 p.m., the NYPD arrested 35-year-old Gravesend resident Anthony Valenti, who was charged with attempted murder in the second degree, criminal possession of a weapon and reckless endangerment in the Friday, September 7 death of Grei Frasheri, 23.

Frasheri was killed in the wake of a fight that broke out at around 6 p.m., at 93rd St. and Fourth Ave.

Cops initially said that Frasheri had been fatally shot in the neck/chest area; a report in the Sept. 12 Daily News cited the cause of death as stabbing, and noted that cops originally thought that Frasheri had been shot to death because of the presence of shell casings in the area.

According to the Daily News, Valenti is believed by cops to be the person who fired at Frasheri, who was subsequently stabbed by a second assailant.

Frasheri was rushed to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn where he was pronounced dead. The victim, according to the News, died of his stab wounds.
