A Brooklyn man has been arrested and charged with shooting and killing a Rochester man in December of last year.

Members of the Major Crimes Unit and the U.S. Marshals Task Force went to New York City on Sunday and arrested 33-year-old Dakwan Patterson.  He was brought back to Rochester and charged with second-degree murder.

Investigators believe Patterson and the victim, 27-year-old Antoine Brown, of Rochester, got into an argument that escalated into a shooting on Jay and Orchard Streets on December 18, 2013. Brown suffered two gunshot wounds. He was taken to the old St. Mary’s Hospital in a private vehicle and then transported to Strong Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
