Police have arrested a Brooklyn man in a deadly shooting outside a barber shop earlier this month.

Authorities say 21-year-old Joshua Nunez killed 29-year-old Charles Fernandez, of Manhattan, on the Lower East Side on October 7.

The incident apparently started as a dispute in the barber shop, and the argument spilled out into the street.

Fernandez managed to put himself in a cab to Bellevue Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Nunez is charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
