Brooklyn man wanted in murder busted smoking joint in rental car – New York News


So much for keeping a low profile.


A Brooklyn man wanted for a murder from last summer was caught Thursday parked at a bus stop in a rental car he had no permission to drive with a lit marijuana cigarette in his hand, cops said.


Travain Nibbs, 28, was charged with shooting 26-year-old Andre Powell to death on E. 95th St. and Conklin Ave. in Canarsie on Aug. 28, police said.


He was parked in a 2017 Chevy Malibu at Stanley Ave. and E. 108th St. when he was nabbed Thursday, police said. He had no valid rental agreement for the car and was smoking a joint. Cops found a gravity knife in the vehicle.

Police haven’t said what spurred the shooting. Police sources said a party took place hours on the block where Powell was killed hours before the shooting.


Powell had a .45-caliber gun in his hand when he was shot, sources said.


Nibbs is charged with murder, weapon possession and other offenses.
