Brown (DCPI)

After a two-day manhunt, cops nabbed Tyrell Brown on Tuesday, the suspect in a carjacking that later led to a police chase and shots fired by officers on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

Brown, 25, of Staten Island was arrested while donning a women’s wig to disguise himself while police escalated their search.

SILive reports:

The intense manhunt for Brown came to a close at about 10 p.m Tuesday night, after patrol officers from the 120th Precinct caught Brown on Mosel and Osgood avenues, not far from the Park Hill Apartments, multiple police sources said.

An eagle-eyed civilian saw through his disguise Tuesday night, and flagged down a patrol car from the 120th Precinct, an NYPD spokeswoman told the Advance.

Brown was arrested after a short chase, those sources said.

In addition to robbery and criminal possession of stolen property, Brown has been charged with the murder of Kuwan Collins of Staten Island. Collins was shot in the head.

Police are investigating Brown’s possible connection to another murder, in which Devin Powell was found fatally shot just a few blocks away from where the black 2006 Hummer was carjacked at gunpoint.

The paper also notes charges of attempted robbery for another carjacking, committed by a man wearing a wig not long before Brown’s apprehension.

The MTA is warning E-ZPass users of a new e-mail phishing scam that has surfaced, in which digital con artists attempt to get at your private data by warning of phony unpaid tolls.

Phishing scams attempt to dupe users to send the scammer sensitive information, including usernames, passwords or banking information by masquerading as a trustworthy entity.

Scam artists are sending out official looking e-mails carrying the E-ZPass logo, often from an e-mail account that appears to be connected to the service. A screenshot of the e-mail is shown above, stating that the user has not paid for driving on a toll road and that previous invoices have not been responded to. It provides a link to download the invoice.

In reality, the E-ZPass Service Center does not send out e-mail invoices for payments. All bills are sent through the United States Postal Service. The e-mails are not authorized by E-ZPass, MTA Bridges and Tunnels or any other toll agency associated with the service.

The agency is advising customers not to open or respond such e-mail, and instead send them straight to the trash bin. If you think you may have a legitimate e-mail from E-ZPass and want confirmation before opening it, you can call the E-ZPass New York Customer Service Center at (800) 333-8655.

Crime Stoppers and the New York City Police Department are now offering a $12,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Tyrell Brown.

Brown, 25, is the suspect in a carjacking and believed to be the person MTA Bridge and Tunnel Authority Police fired at on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge yesterday morning.

According to cops, Brown flashed a gun at a 29-year-old man in Staten Island, and swiped his black Hummer on Sunday.

Early Monday morning, Bridges & Tunnels officers had an eye out for the vehicle, and spotted it crossing the Verrazano Bridge from Brooklyn into Staten Island. They stopped the vehicle, spurring the female passenger to try and flee on foot, and Brown attempted to make off with the Hummer. The officers opened fire while Brown slammed into nearby cars before ultimately shaking the cops. He abandoned the car in Staten Island and remains on the lam.

Tyree Brown is described as a 25-year-old black male, 5’08″ in height, 150 pounds, with black hair, brown eyes and has “Dorothea” tattooed on his neck. He was last seen wearing a red hooded jacket and tan pants.

The $12,000 reward includes $2,000 payable by Crime Stoppers upon arrest and indictment, and $10,000 payable by the NYPD upon arrest and conviction.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website, or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

Police are hunting for Tyree Brown, 25, the suspect in a carjacking believed to be the person MTA Bridge and Tunnel Authority Police fired at on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge this morning.

According to police, Brown flashed a gun at a 29-year-old man on Holland Avenue in Staten Island yesterday afternoon. He ordered the man to the ground, swiped his keys and fled in the victim’s 2006 black Hummer.

Authorities put out an alert, and Verrazano Bridge officers were on guard for the vehicle. It turned up at Staten Island-bound toll booths at approximately 1:15 a.m. Two officers stopped the car before bullets began flying.

“I can confirm that around 1:15 a.m. several shots were fired by two Bridge and Tunnel Officers at a car believed to have been hijacked (somewhere else in the city) at gunpoint,” said MTA Bridges and Tunnels spokesperson Judie Glave. “NYPD asked MTA Bridges and Tunnels officers at the Verrazano-Narrows to be on the lookout for the car.”

The NYPD and MTA Bridges and Tunnels declined to elaborate, citing the ongoing investigation.

SILive reports that the cops heard what they believed might be a gunshot coming from within the car:

One law enforcement source familiar with the investigation said that when the officers approached, they heard a loud bang that sounded like a gunshot, and someone inside threw a woman out of the Hummer. That sound is what spurred the officers to open fire, the source said.

The female passenger tried to flee and was arrested at the toll plaza, the MTA spokeswoman said. The male driver took off north on a nearby service road, ditching the vehicle on Targee Street before running off.

Tyree Brown is described as a 25-year-old black male, 5’08″ in height, 150 pounds, with black hair, brown eyes and has “Dorothea” tattooed on his neck. He was last seen wearing a red hooded jacket and tan pants.
