Gabriel Rivera is wanted for allegedly murdering his ex-girlfriend on Oct. 7 at the corner of St. Nicholas Avenue and Menahan Street on the Ridgewood/Bushwick border.

A Ridgewood man faces murder and weapons possession charges after turning himself in to police for fatally shooting his former girlfriend on the Ridgewood/Bushwick border on Sunday evening.

Gabriel Rivera, 26, of Linden Street allegedly shot Sade Sanchez, 24, as she walked with her mother and her friend in the area of St. Nicholas Avenue and Menahan Street at 10:27 p.m. on Oct. 7, police reported.

According to published reports, Rivera allegedly walked up to Sanchez, pulled out a gun and fired multiple shots at Sanchez, striking her in the neck, chest, shoulder and stomach. He then fled the scene in an unknown direction.

Officers from the 83rd Precinct responded to the incident. Sanchez, who lived on Menahan Street in Bushwick, just a few steps from where she had been shot, was rushed to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center. She died there moments later.

On Monday morning, Oct. 8, the NYPD released Rivera’s mugshot. According to sources familiar with the investigation, Rivera has one prior arrest for a grand larceny that occurred in March of this year within the 83rd Precinct’s confines.
