The man who allegedly fatally shot his pregnant ex-girlfriend shortly after her baby shower in Harlem was busted early Thursday, according to police sources.
Justin Soriano, 40, was picked up at a Bronx home by the borough’s Warrants Squad in connection to the slaying of Shanice Young, 31, at West 128th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard around 1 a.m. Sunday, the sources said.
He was taken to Harlem’s 32 Precinct, where charges are pending, according to the sources.
Soriano was chasing around Young’s current boyfriend when she tried to intervene in the fight, cops said.
Young, who was eight months pregnant with her second child, was shot once in the head and later pronounced dead at the hospital, authorities said.
Her unborn baby did not survive, cops said.
Cops released a photo of Soriano Tuesday.
Soriano has nine prior arrests on his record. The most recent was in 2016 for criminal possession of a controlled substance. His other charges included resisting arrest, criminal sale of a controlled substance and assault, police sources said.
