NYC: NYC slaying leads to wild police car chase through Manhattan

A fatal shooting in Upper Manhattan on Monday night sparked a wild police car chase through the borough that ended with one suspect in handcuffs, police and sources said.

The mayhem unfolded when a gunman shot and killed an unidentified man at about 10:20 p.m. near the intersection of East 118th Street and First Avenue in East Harlem, police said.

Cops in the area heard the shooting and tried to pull over a silver BMW sedan they saw speeding away from the scene, but the driver took off, heading southbound on the FDR Drive, police sources said.

The cops tailed the car to 53rd Street and First Avenue, where the driver and a passenger bailed out and took off on foot, police and sources said.

The passenger, a 33-year-old man, was arrested near the scene, but the driver is still in the wind, cops said.
