TROY, N.Y. - Troy police say one man was discovered dead after being shot in the head in broad daylight Thursday afternoon, and have arrested the alleged shooter.
The victim is identified as 36-year-old Sha-Kim Miller, also known as "Pacino G.I.R." Miller is originally from Brooklyn and has resided in Troy for several years.
Miller's body was discovered late Thursday afternoon at Madison and Second Street. Police say he was confirmed dead at that time.
Police say numerous 911 calls went out seconds after the shooting, which occured around 2:40 p.m. They say there are many witnesses to the shooting because it happened during the daytime in a very populated neighborhood.
After multiple shots were fired, the suspect 19-year-old Allen McBee, of Watervliet, fled down Second Street to Ida Street where police took him into custody.
A firearm was recovered and secured from the scene shortly after police arrived. Police have also taken a piece of clothing that was found near the scene into custody which they believe may be evidence.
McBee has been arrested and charged with Criminal Possession of a Weapon in the 2nd degree, a felony, and Criminal Use of a Firearm in the 2nd degree, a violent felony offense. He was arraigned Friday morning in Troy Police Court.
He said very little in court, asking the judge if those are the only charges he is facing and yelling the word "Squad" as he smirked and walked out of court.
He has yet to be charged with murder or manslaughter. However Troy police are confident he is the person who and killed Miller. Police say there are a number of people who could identity McBee. Police say the men knew each other and there was some kind of conflict or argument that led up to the shooting, but police are not saying what the motive is.
