Defense in correction officer’s death: You’ve got wrong guy

NEW YORK (AP) — The lawyer for a New York City transit worker charged in a possible road-rage killing says he believes police arrested the wrong person.

Bus maintenance worker Gifford Hunter was arraigned Monday in the death of off-duty correction officer Jonathan Narain. Correction officers packed the courtroom.

Police say Narain and Hunter, who was on a motorcycle, argued before Hunter opened fire at a Queens intersection and sped away early Friday.

Defense attorney Kenneth Finkelman tells WCBS that Hunter has no criminal record and doesn’t own a gun.
