2 teens arrested in nightclub killing
Two teens have been arrested in connection with a nightclub killing in Fordham last month.
According to police, 19-year-old Zaire Bansey and 18-year-old Peter Hajdari have been charged in connection with the fatal shooting of Dennis Rodriguez.
The incident happened outside the Xtreme Lounge on Valentine Avenue back on Oct. 5. Police say an argument broke out between two groups and then spilled outside onto the sidewalk.
Authorities say Hajdari and Bansey were identified through eyewitnesses. They say the six victims, including Rodriguez, knew the two suspects.
News 12 is told at least one of the victims remains hospitalized in critical condition.
Bansey and Hajdari are both charged with murder, manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon. The two suspects are due back in court Friday.
