CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn (WABC) -- A man is now facing charges in two separate deadly shootings in Brooklyn.

Police say 41-year-old Hason Rink shot and killed 39-year-old Ancil Blackman last Friday night.

The victim was found in the middle of the street after being shot in the face.

Blackman's family says he lived on the street where the shooting occurred and was coming home from work.

According to officials, Blackman was shot following a dispute.

Police say Rink was also behind another deadly shooting earlier this month.

In that one, 20-year-old Deondraye Moore was killed and a 36-year-old woman was hurt.

The woman was shot once in the arm and once in the torso and was taken to Brookdale Hospital to recover.

Rink is facing charges of murder, attempted murder, and criminal possession of a weapon.
