NY Daily News reports that a Manhattan man could face the death penalty in the fatal shooting of an East Harlem teen who was gunned down last week in a turf battle at a public housing project, authorities said.

Gary Turner was arrested Tuesday, seven days after 17-year-old Samuel Ozuna was shot and killed outside the George Washington Carver Houses along E. 104th Street.

Cops said the 17-year-old victim was walking along a footpath leading to a courtyard near Park Ave. when a barrage of bullets struck him in the chest shortly 8:30 p.m. on April 24.

Medics took Ozuna to Mt. Sinai Hospital, where he died.
