Suspect arrested in triple homicide case
Police have arrested a suspect in the murder of three men found dead near campus earlier this month, the New York Post reported Saturday.
Roberto Nunez, a convicted felon, was arrested at about 8 a.m. as he entered his brother’s home in the Bronx, according to the Post. An acquaintance had taken Nunez’s gun and sold it to an undercover police officer, and police were able to match it to shell casings found in the victims, leading to the arrest.
The three victims were found fatally shot in a car parked across the street from Columbia’s Knox Hall, on 122nd Street between Broadway and Claremont Avenue. The Post said that all three were marijuana traffickers, and that Nunez might have killed them for robbing rival drug dealers.
