The NYPD’s chief of detective tells reporters on Monday the 36-year-old man is being held on charges he struck a bicyclist 10 minutes after the shooting.
Robert Boyce didn’t release the man’s name. He hasn’t been charged in the double slaying.
But Boyce says surveillance footage shows the man speeding away from the scene of the Saturday shooting near a Queens mosque in a black GMC Trailblazer.
He says 10 minutes later, that car also struck a bicyclist 3 miles away in Brooklyn.
Detectives arrested the man Sunday night in the hit-and-run accident.
Authorities don’t know what prompted the daytime shooting of Imam Maulama Alauddin Akonjee and Thara Uddin.
