Clarence Scott, who police initially identified as Lawrence Scott, has been arrested for the 2013 murder of Francisco Leal in Long Island City.

Police have arrested a 27-year-old man for the murder of an aspiring hip-hop artist last year in Long Island City.

Francisco Leal, 27, suffered a fatal gunshot wound to the chest on Feb. 2, 2013, at the corner of 21st Street and 41st Avenue near the Queensbridge Houses.

In December, the NYPD released a photo and information of the suspect wanted in connection to the murder.

Earlier last month, Clarence Scott, who police initially identified as Lawrence Scott, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force April 4 in Virginia, according to published reports. He was then arraigned on April 25 in Queens Criminal Court, the Queens district attorney’s office said.

Scott, who is being held without bail, was arraigned on charges of  second-degree murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, according to a criminal complaint.
