Nassau County police have apprehended a suspect who allegedly gunned down a 34-year-old man in Hempstead last month, authorities said.

Keon Williams was arrested Saturday and charged with second-degree murder.

Homicide Squad detectives alleged that the 37-year-old Rockville Centre man fatally shot Tyree Sheppard of Hempstead on Sunday, April 14.

A Burnett Street resident found the victim suffering from a gunshot wound lying on the sidewalk within minutes of another murder in the same village.

Williams will be arraigned Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead.
