The man wanted for the murder of Carey Gabay, a former aide to Governor Andrew Cuomo, in Brooklyn last Labor Day was arrested Friday, police announced.

According to law enforcement officials, Micah Alleyne, 24, of Van Wyck Expressway in Jamaica has been charged with murder, criminal possession of a firearm and reckless endangerment in connection to Gabay’s Sept. 7, 2015, murder.

Gabay, who was preparing to take part in the West Indies Carnival that day, was shot in the head in front of 1680 Bedford Ave. as he was walking down the Brooklyn street, police said. He was taken to Kings County Hospital in critical condition; he succumbed to his injuries on Sept. 16.

“Carey Gabay was an exemplary public servant who lost his life in a senseless tragedy,” Cuomo said in a statement. “Today’s arrest is a major step forward in the pursuit of justice for Carey’s family and loved ones. I commend the investigators and prosecutors for their tireless efforts to ensure those responsible for Carey’s death are held fully accountable for their actions.”
