A Manhattan man who allegedly gunned down a Woodside resident on 47th Avenue 18 months ago was arrested Thursday.
Miguel Valencia, 25, was charged Nov. 30 for the murder of Miguel Angel Ramirez Tercaro, 31, that took place at around 3:00 a.m. on April 9, 2016.
Valencia allegedly shot Ramirez-Tercero multiple times in the head and torso in front of 67-26 47th Ave. When police arrived, Ramirez-Tercaro was found lying unconscious in the middle of the street. He was rushed by EMS to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
A witness saw two groups of men arguing prior to the shots being fired, the Daily News reported at the time. Video footage was also captured near the crime scene.
Valencia was charged with second degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.
