Investigtors have arrested a suspect in Thursday’s fatal shooting of Kareem Mano at a Bloomfield market.
De’Andre Malik Thomas turned himself in Friday in connection with the killing that happened just after 3:20 p.m. at the USA Grocery at 2590 Rocky Creek Road.
Mano was shot multiple times as he ran away from Thomas.
Thomas met Mano in the parking lot to discuss a cellphone transaction between Thomas and the sister of Mano’s girlfriend, who said the iPhone was locked and demanded her money back.
