The NYPD announced Monday November 23 that suspect Vincent Arcona was arrested.

The 23-year-old from Medford, N.Y. has been charged with tampering with physical evidence and criminal possession of a controlled substance.


Police on Thursday arrested Vincent Arcona, one of the suspects in Monday's fatal shooting near Penn Station, the New York Post reported.

Arcona was arrested at Bronx Lebanon Hospital after doctors recognized him despite giving a false name.

The other suspect, Francisco Alsina, has not been arrested.


A 43-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. The other two victims were transported to Bellevue Hospital.

The two people being treated for injuries included a 45-year-old man shot in the neck and abdomen, who remains in critical condition. Additionally, a 48-year-old man shot in the leg was said to be in a stable condition.

Penn Station serves as a large transport hub for Manhattan, with major subway, rail, and bus connections.

CBS New York reported the shooting happened inside a McDonalds restaurant, notorious for being a hang-out for drug users.

The shooting reportedly began as a drug dispute inside the restaurant that spilled out on to the street.

Police have made 52 arrests at the restaurant so far this year, CBS reported.
