A suspect has been arrested in connection with the broad daylight killing of a 20-year-old man at a motorcycle sale in the Bronx, police said.

Manuel Reyes, 23, was arrested and charged with second degree murder, first degree manslaughter, second degree assault and possession of a weapon in connection with the Wednesday murder of Jefferson Hernandez, 20 years, police said on Sunday.

Hernandez, of Spring Valley, Rockland County, drove to East 144th and Exterior streets in Mott Haven with three other men to purchase a Kawasaki motorcycle they found on Facebook Marketplace, authorities said.

Hernandez drove down from Rockland Country in a black Chevrolet Trailblazer with a U-Haul flatbed trailer attached along with three other men.

The trio who descended with Reyes — in a black Chevrolet Trailblazer with a U-Haul flatbed trailer attached — were uninjured.

In addition to Reyes, authorities are looking for three other people in connection with the fatal shooting.
