An arrest has been made in the shooting death of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's aide, Carey Gabay, Friday, according to sources. 
Police say they arrested 24-year-old Micah Alleyne in connection to the fatal shooting. 
Alleyne is accused in the fatal shooting of 43-year-old Gabay, who was struck several times on Sept. 7, 2015 just before the West Indian American Day parade as he walked on Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn. 
Officers say Alleyne is facing charges including second-degree murder and reckless endangerment.
Court papers say Alleyne and "numerous others" fired guns and one of the bullets struck Gabay.
Gabay, a lawyer in Cuomo's administration, died more than a week after he was shot in the head.
In a statement Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson says, "This arrest is related to the ongoing investigation into the senseless murder of Carey Gabay. As I have said from the beginning, we are determined to get justice for Mr. Gabay and his family. And we will continue to press forward until we hold everyone responsible for his death accountable."
The governor's office released a statement saying, "Carey Gabay was an exemplary public servant who lost his life in a senseless tragedy. Today's arrest is a major step forward in the pursuit of justice for Carey's family and loved ones. I commend the investigators and prosecutors for their tireless efforts to ensure those responsible for Carey's death are held fully accountable for their actions."
