Arrest in MLK Park Shooting



Buffalo, NY (WBEN) Federal prosecutors and local police agencies say a gang member is charged with a shooting at Martin Luther King Park last May.

20 year old Tariq Brown is charged with killing Marquay Lee and wounding four others who were picnicking in the park.

US Attorney Bill Hochul says Brown is part of the Bailey Boys gang and is already accused of three other attempted murders. The federal charges are based on the RICO Act.

The Bailey boys gang was busted last summer.

Brown faces a mandatory life sentence if convicted.
