Authorities responded and found 47-year-old Jason Coldwell dead at the scene, according to police.

Medina remained at the scene as police arrived but provided no statement, police said. He instead asked for a lawyer. Three witnesses provided statement but police did not say what allegedly led to the murder.

Medina is being held in a New York jail without bond.
