A Hollis man was arrested on Dec. 6 and charged with attempted murder and other crimes in the fatal shooting of an aspiring rapper on a Rosedale dead-end street in August, according to authorities.

Zandrae Ennis, 22, of 205th Street, was busted during an unrelated traffic stop in the 105th Precinct. Officers determined that there was an arrest warrant issued for Ennis in a homicide investigation into the Aug. 7 fatal shooting of Tysheen McDonald, an 18-year-old drill rapper from Springfield Gardens, according to an NYPD spokeswoman.

Ennis is the second suspect charged in the case after Dariel Herrera, 30, of Hale Avenue in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn, was taken into custody on Nov. 23 and charged with murder, attempted murder, two counts of assault and four counts of possession of a weapon.

On the evening of Aug. 7, police from the 105th Precinct in Queens Village responded to a 911 call of a man shot in front of 231-08 148th Ave. and discovered McDonald lying in the dead-end street with a gunshot wound to his chest. EMS responded to the crime scene and rushed McDonald to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

A 24-year-old man was shot in the leg and was transported by private means to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he was treated for the gunshot wound.

Ennis was booked at the 105th Precinct on Dec. 6 and charged with attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon and a loaded firearm, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a firearm, according to the NYPD.
