CROWN HEIGHTS — A 23-year-old Brooklyn man has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a teenager who aspired to become a teacher, according to the NYPD.

Travis Bourne was charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon Wednesday in the shooting death of Darius Robinson, who was gunned down on Saint Marks Avenue in the early morning hours of August 21, police said.

Robinson was not the intended target, cops have said.

The arrest comes after two other suspects were locked up in connection with the crime.

Lamount Samuell, 21, was taken into custody in October and charged with criminal possession of a weapon. And last week, Anthony Morris, 23, was arrested on charges of murder and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

Robinson, who dreamed of becoming a teacher, held down two jobs in high school and worked at McDonald's and doing maintenance.
