The suspect in the fatal shooting of a retired New York City Police Department officer in Brooklyn on Monday has been apprehended.

Police identified the suspect as Michael Soto, 33. He has been charged with manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and assault. 

Retired officer Thomas Marrinan, 57, was  struck by gunfire after rushing to a pizzeria in Kensington with his friend, a retired city correction officer, whose father was being harassed by an unruly 33-year-old man at about 7:30, according to law enforcement sources.

Nick White, Marrinan’s nephew who is a police officer, told the paper that he is relieved the suspect is off the streets.

“It’s a great weight off our shoulders to know he’s not out there and he can’t do anything like this again to vulnerable people in the community,” he said.
