Police arrested a man who fatally shot the mother of his newborn child during an apparent dispute at the victim’s South Jamaica home early Sunday morning.

On Sept. 17 at around 2 a.m., police responded to a 911 call of an assault at a home on 147th Street near 133rd Avenue. Upon their arrival, they found 34-year-old Luz Cuza unconscious and unresponsive with a gunshot wound to the head.
