A teenager was taken into custody in connection with the August killing of a man in Mott Haven.

On Sept. 3, the NYPD charged a 17-year-old with murder and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon for the murder of Demetry Aristole, of East 174 Street.

On Aug. 27, at 9:28 a.m., police responded to a 911 call of a male shot at 234 E. 149 St. A preliminary investigation revealed that Aristole, 29, was standing in the vicinity of 137 Street and St. Ann’s Avenue, when he was shot in the chest multiple times by an unknown individual.

Aristole was taken to Lincoln Hospital by private means where he was later pronounced dead.
