Suspect nabbed for caught-on-video fatal shooting of Bronx driver

A suspect has been nabbed for shooting into a car in the Bronx, killing the driver, police said Tuesday.

Cesar Santana, 27, was arrested Monday for murder, manslaughter and gun possession for allegedly shooting 19-year-old Travis Griffiths on July 22. On August 3, the NYPD released surveillance video of the shooting and asked the public’s help identifying the killer.

Griffiths pulled up in his 2020 Toyota Camry and was approached by the gunman on Claremont Parkway near Webster Ave. in Claremont.

The pair argued, with video showing the gunman firing into the car as Griffiths drove off.

As the gunman ran off, the victim crashed into a nearby building. Griffiths died five days later at St. Barnabas Hospital.

Two other men caught on video appear to be with the gunman though it’s not clear if they were part of the argument.

Griffiths lived in Saddlebrook, N.J., according to cops, while Santana lives in the Morris Heights section of the Bronx.

Santana’s arraignment was pending in Bronx Criminal Court Tuesday.
