Police have arrested a man who allegedly shot three women outside a Flatiron club early Monday, including one fatally. The shooting suspect has been identified by police as Dalone Jamison, a 26-year-old Bronx man who has a lengthy rap sheet, and according to reports in the Post and Daily News, had recently befriended the deceased victim, Walikque Faussett.

The 24-year-old who was killed outside of Motivo at Broadway and 21st Street was a Bronx resident and a mom of a three-year-old son.

The Post noted Jamison even drove Faussett to the club for her birthday, where he reportedly got thrown out by a bouncer after getting into an argument with someone. He allegedly vowed to come back with a gun and then made good on his threat. He’d been aiming for the bouncers when he opened fire, a law enforcement source told the New York Times.

The Daily News reported Jamison posted on Instagram after the incident, saying he hoped his “lil sis” was okay. “I would loose it if not,” he wrote as a caption underneath a photo of himself with Faussett.

Police said that at 4 a.m., the victims were found in front of Motivo. Faussett, who’d been shot in the back, was later pronounced dead at Bellevue Hospital. A 30-year-old woman was shot in the shoulder and a 25-year-old woman had been shot on the hip and foot.

The Post article also noted that Jamison has been arrested 12 times, and has six convictions, with one case involving a woman he allegedly assaulted and then videotaped as other women continued beating her. The News reported that according to court papers, he choked the woman, pulled her to the ground and then slammed her head on the concrete.

Jamison, who is believed to be a member of the Dymes R Us gang, according to reports, was arrested in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn at around 11 a.m., Tuesday, the Post reported.

Police have since charged him with murder, two counts of assault and three counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
