SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Syracuse Police have made an arrest in a deadly shooting a week ago.
Mark McMullen, 21, who turned himself into police, is facing a charge of murder in the second degree.
Myquan Lawrence, 18, was gunned down near the intersection of Fayette and Croly streets on April 6th. Police say the shooting followed a dispute between Lawrence and McMullen.
The city's police chief credits assistance from witnesses for helping to crack the case. It's a trend toward cooperation that he welcomes.
“Where there are citizens that are involved, whether they're eyewitnesses. Or perhaps they're victims or something like that. We're experiencing a great deal of cooperation. And I think we're moving in a positive direction and I feel pretty good about that,” said Syracuse Police Chief Frank Fowler.
Fowler says his department has made a concerted effort to establish the relationships in the community that will lead to more cooperation in the future.
