He had a one-way ticket to the island, but it is clear if he is a citizen of that country

Domingo Berroa was accused of the murder of Wendolin Ortiz, after being arrested yesterday at the JFK airport in New York ready to board a flight to the Dominican Republic.
Ortiz, a 19-year-old teenager, was shot to death on Monday shortly after 7 a.m. inside a University Heights club along Jerome Avenue in The Bronx. Ironically, the young woman had survived a shooting in that same county in June.
Berroa (32), a Woodlawn (NYC) resident, allegedly fired at the clandestine social club, reported NYPD. Besides Ortiz, he left others two wounded men, aged 28 and 30.
According Pix11, Ortiz was an innocent bystander in Monday’s shooting, which began when a fight broke out between two people at the speakeasy and one of them pulled out a semi-automatic pistol and fired. “The teenager was sitting at a table some distance from the people who were fighting.”
The suspect was detained in international terminal 4 of the JFK airport, carrying a ticket in his name with no return to the Dominican Republic, according to police sources. It was not reported whether he is a national of that country.
My sister’s best friend, Wendolin Ortiz died yesterday morning in a restaurant shoot out, now her single mom is left to deal with the fees. Anything helps for her funeral. https://t.co/I71ECv48W3
