MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WABC) – An arrest has been made in connection with the double homicide at a recording studio in Midtown Manhattan.

Police say Kabal Reyes, 24, was arrested and charged with murder on Monday.

Police have previously released photos of four suspects they believe are linked to the shooting, and Reyes is the first of them to be arrested.

Sources told Eyewitness News that the suspects showed up at a recording studio on West 37th Street to settle a dispute in the early morning hours of May 5.

First responders found Kamir King, 34, known as rapper Haarlem Star, shot in the head inside the studio.

He is believed to be the intended target of the shootout.

They also found 24-year-old Devon Dillahunt outside the building with a gunshot wound to his back.

He had a weapon under him, according to the police.

Dillahunt is believed to be linked to Reyes’ group, and police believe he was fatally shot as the group fled.

Detectives are still trying to determine who shot whom and the investigation remains active.

George Mims, an artist who goes through GMims, spoke with Eyewitness News in May about King.

They both graduated from Frederick Douglass Academy in Harlem and had plans to collaborate one day.

“He was a really dope rapper, drug producer, part of my core artist school,” Mims said.
