VALLEY STREAM, Long Island (WABC) -- An arrest has been made on Long Island after a man was killed when gunfire erupted last month at an illegal party in Valley Stream.
Kyle Matthews, 21, was arraigned on Thursday morning. He is charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
He told reporters Thursday morning that he didn't fire the shots.
Police said they knew who they were looking for based on multiple surveillance videos. They also said that Matthews is just one of two shooting suspects in the case.
The shooting on Aug. 21 at 85 Ocean Avenue sent dozens of people running for their lives.
DeAndre Carter, a 20-year-old man from Brooklyn, was shot in the chest and killed and three children were wounded when shots were fired.
A 12-year-old boy standing in the doorway was shot in the left upper shoulder after a bullet went in and came out of his back.
Two other boys, both 17 and both from Elmont, were also struck. One was hit in the rear of his leg and the other in his knee.
The shooting is believed to be gang related and police say Matthews, who has several prior arrests, should have been behind bars.
"This individual should have been in jail, this senseless murder would not have happened, and the other three victims that were shot and wounded because this bad guy was still on the streets, that's what we have got to stop," said Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder.
Matthews is due back in court next week.
