Two men from Brooklyn are now charged in a double shooting in Newburgh last April that killed a maintenance worker and paralyzed another.
Dwayne Hines and Romaine McRae, both 39 years old, are accused of targeting the victims at the start of their shifts and shooting them just before 9 a.m. on Lander and Farrington streets.
Authorities released surveillance photos showing the gunmen moments before the shootings during a news conference Friday.
They say the men were arrested after a three-month investigation with the help of state police, NYPD, the Orange County District Attorney’s Office and the FBI.
“To the victims and their families and the entire community affected by this tragedy, we want you to know that we will will bring justice to your doorstep. We will stand as a shield against those who seek to harm you,” said City of Newburgh Police Commissioner Jose Gomerez.
Shane Lawrence, 41, died in the shooting. His RUPCO coworker, 50 year-old Richard Herring, is now paralyzed from the waist down.
Authorities say the shooters could face 25 years to life in prison.
