Manuel Reyes, 23, was arrested on murder and manslaughter charges.
Police said three friends from Rockland County arranged to buy two motorcycles via social media and drove to a desolate spot under the Major Deegan Expressway to meet the sellers.
But what unfolded was no simple sales agreement.
When the sellers arrived last week, police say Reyes pulled out a gun and shot one of the buyers, 20-year-old Jefferson Hernandez, multiple times in the face.
The two friends who witnessed the 20-year-old's death were uninjured and were cooperating with detectives.
