A 32-year-old St. Albans man is awaiting arraignment on murder charges Thursday for fatally shooting a man during an argument on a neighborhood street earlier this year.

Following an investigation, police took Nakia Garnett of 190th Place into custody early on the morning of June 30 for allegedly killing Phillip Harris, 32, of 188th Street in St. Albans early on the morning of April 16.

 

According to authorities, Garnett and Harris allegedly became embroiled in a verbal dispute in the vicinity of Liberty and Brinckerhoff avenues just before 5:56 a.m. on April 16. The argument turned deadly when Garnett allegedly pulled out a gun and shot Harris multiple times in the torso, then fled the scene.

Officers from the 113th Precinct and EMS units were called to the scene and found Harris unconscious and unresponsive. He was transported to Jamaica Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Garnett was booked Thursday on charges of murder and criminal possession of a weapon. Check back later for additional details about his arrest.
