Suffolk County Police arrested Brandon Davis, 19, of Bridgehampton on Friday and charged him with the murder of Taleik Bristel, of Medford. Davis faces charges of murder in the second degree, a felony. He will be arraigned Saturday morning at First District Court in Central Islip.
According to police, the arrest comes after an investigation by the Suffolk County Police Homicide Squad into a shooting that took place Christmas morning, around 3:30 a.m. at Whitestar MTR. Sixth Precinct police officers responded to a 911 call after a caller reported that masked men had entered the Cedarhurst Ave. business, demanded money and shot four people.
Three of the victims were taken to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center in East Patchogue with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds. A fourth victim, Bristel, 19, was pronounced dead at the scene.
