NEW HAVEN, CT (WFSB) -

Sources have confirmed to Eyewitness News that police arrested a suspect involved in the shooting death of a man in front of a New Haven convenience store Monday night.

At about 9 p.m., Qusaan "QB" McKoy, of Hamden, was found lying on the sidewalk outside the Haven Market on Chapel Street suffering from several gunshot wounds.

Witnesses told Eyewitness News they tried stopping the bleeding until the ambulance arrived.

McKoy was rushed to Yale-New Haven Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

On Wednesday afternoon, the suspect, who was later identified as "Big Head" Shaune Meyers, was spotted on a bicycle and led police on a chase, according to investigators. 

Meyers, who police said was on angel dust, had a firearm on him and pointed it at the officers. The officers drew their weapons and fired at the suspect, police said.

No shots hit the suspect, who did not return fire and dropped his weapon.

Meyers ran into an apartment in the area of Norton Street where the a SWAT team was called to.

Police said Meyers changed clothes and tried to escape from officers. However, officers caught Meyers and arrested him.

No one was seriously injured during the incident.

On April 5, 26-year-old Richard Eichler was shot and killed inside the Super Deli on Chapel Street, just a few blocks up from Monday's deadly shooting.
