Police have arrested a man accused of gunning down a 34-year-old victim in Harlem last month.

Gregory Williams, 35, was nabbed Thursday at his Bronx home by members of the NYPD Violent Felony Squad and charged with murder, weapons possesion and criminal use of a firearm for blasting at Dwayne Buchanan on Aug. 4, police said.

Buchanan was sitting on a crate on St. Nicholas Ave. near W. 124th St. about 3:45 a.m. when Williams came by and shot him five times in the chest and buttocks, police and witnesses said.

Buchanan scrambled into a nearby deli for shelter before he collapsed. Medics rushed him to Mount Sinai-St Luke’s Hospital where he died.

The two men live about three miles away from each other in the Bronx, but it wasn’t immediately clear why Williams had targeted Buchanan.

Williams’ arraignment was pending in Manhattan Criminal Court Friday.
