    FILE - Boston authorities at the scene of a deadly shooting inside a Mattapan barbershop in June 2016.

    Boston police say they have made an arrest in the shooting death last year of a man killed in front of his 4-year-old son at a city barbershop.

    Authorities say 29-year-old William Shakespeare was arrested Tuesday in New York City.

    Shakespeare, of Dedham, faces first-degree murder and other charges in connection with the shooting on June 14 of 31-year-old Marcus Hall.

    Witnesses said at the time that Hall had just arrived at the barbershop in the city's Mattapan neighborhood to get his son a haircut when he was killed. Police have not disclosed a motive for the shooting.

    Shakespeare remains in New York awaiting extradition and it was unclear when he'd be returned to Massachusetts. It could not immediately be determined if he has a lawyer.
