The suspect accused of murdering 36-year-old John Brea on Washington Avenue last May was arrested on Saturday.
32-year-old Lateef Hicks, who lives in East New York, has been charged with murder and weapons possession.
Brea was shot once in the head and once in the body on May 2 just before 9:51 p.m. in front of Louis and Shorty's Barbershop, between St. Johns and Sterling places, an NYPD spokesman said.
Neighbors said Brea grew up on St. Johns Place near Washington Avenue. Although he most recently lived on Pine Street in East New York, he hung out frequently on Washington Avenue.
