YONKERS, NY – Federal agents with the FBI have arrested a man who shot another man inside a Yonkers apartment last week. Nahkeem Janvier, 21, was apprehended in North Carolina.

According to police, last Wednesday, at approximately 2:50 AM, officers responded to an apartment at 32 Vineyard Avenue on a report of a shooting incident.

Police said an argument inside the apartment escalated into a shooting.

A 33-year-old was taken to the hospital with a non-life-threatening gunshot wound prior to police arrival. He was allegedly shot by a relative of his domestic partner. Both men were engaged in a dispute at the scene that escalated to violence when Janvier displayed a handgun and fired at least three shots in the victim’s direction, striking him one time.

He fled the state and is now facing an attempted murder charge.
