Manhattan detectives have booked a New Jersey man for his alleged role in a shooting at a Midtown recording studio that left two people dead.
Kabal Reyes, 24, of Linden, NJ allegedly joined three other accomplices in carrying out the brutal murder in what appeared to be an attempt to settle an ongoing dispute, according to law enforcement sources.
Police say Kamir King, 34, was shot in the head outside the makeshift recording studio at 350 West 37th St. around 12:13 a.m. on May 5.
However, an alleged member of Reyes’ group, Devon Dillahunt, 24, was also found dead outside the building with a gunshot wound to his chest. A gun was also discovered under his lifeless body.
Reyes was apprehended July 11 in New Jersey by the Regional Fugitive Task Force and flown back to New York for sentencing. Reyes remained silent as he was led away in handcuffs from Midtown South in the afternoon.
Reyes has been charged with murder. Police continue to search for the two remaining suspects.
