In connection with the killing of Eion Thom on April 1, 2021, Shabazz Johnson, age 28, was arrested and charged with murder in addition to unlawful possession of a firearm.

He had a home that was located approximately a half mile from where he was murdered.
According to the police, he was taken to Kings County Hospital but was unable to be saved there.
