Jorge Aldea, who was wanted for the Nov. 25 murder of Louis Chevere in North Philadelphia, was arrested Friday evening in Bronx, New York, police said.
Rosemary Fernandez Rivera, 33, who reportedly spoke to police as a witness in Chevere’s murder, died Monday night after being shot four times at point blank range while she was working at the Caribe Mini Market on Mutter Street near Westmoreland in North Philadelphia.
Police said the woman was likely targeted, because the shooter walked into the store and opened fire without turning his attention to two other employees, or taking any cash or merchandise.
Agents in the FBI’s New York City field office confirmed that Aldea, 23, was arrested without incident. However, details on the man’s connection to New York City were not immediately available.
