Yonkers man charged in brutal NYC nightclub murder

Police have charged a Yonkers man in the brutal January murder of a man outside a posh Manhattan nightclub.

According to police, 32-year-old Brione Schneider was murdered in cold blood after a Jan. 10 altercation at Club Stereo, a West Side nightclub in Manhattan. More than a month later, police arrested 24-year-old Eric Lee, of Yonkers, on charges of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon.

Police say the deadly incident began on the dance floor and continued outside where Lee shot Schneider in the back just feet away from the club's entrance. Lee remained in police custody Saturday while New York City police continue to investigate the deadly shooting.
