Luis Colon, 25, was taken into custody shortly after the shooting. The second suspect, 25-year-old Eric Rosado-Gonzalez, was taken into custody after an extensive search that lasted about five hours.

SWAT teams, K9 units and the State Police Airwing were involved in the search for Rosado-Gonzales. Several streets were closed during the search.

“I apologize for the inconvenience to the neighborhood but we just wanted to make sure it was safe before we opened it up,” Commissioner Evans said.
