THE BRONX — A man was arrested for fatally shooting another man who was found in the rear of a Soundview home last month, police said.

Kendell Davis, 22, was taken into custody Thursday over the death of Melshawn Cook, 22, who was found shot in the torso at 1140 Wheeler Ave. on the evening of June 3.

He was taken to Jacobi Hospital and later pronounced dead.

The two men may have known each other, though the motive for the shooting remains unclear, according to the NYPD.

Davis was set to be arraigned later on Friday, prosecutors said.
