CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) _ Authorities say a man believed to be the triggerman in a fatal shooting near New York’s Penn Station has been arrested in Rhode Island.

State police say a firearm was found in the Cranston home where Francisco Alsina was arrested Thursday night.

They say the 23-year-old Alsina will be arraigned Friday. It isn’t clear if he has a lawyer.

Three men were shot Monday at a subway entrance near Penn Station following a confrontation at a McDonald’s.

A 43-year-old man shot in the neck died at the scene. The two other victims were hospitalized.

Police in New York took a suspect into custody Thursday for questioning. He’s being held on a drug possession charge.

Police say investigators are searching for a third suspect they believe drove the getaway car.
