The suspect wanted in connection with a stray-bullet shooting that injured a 75-year-old woman on Clinton Street was arrested this week in Florida thanks to some Facebook photos.

Detectives identified, then came across photos of Bronx resident Carlyle Herring, 42, lounging poolside with palm trees in the background. They then scoured his profile for clues on his whereabouts, noting a pool party that happened in Tampa.

According to the Daily News, the Regional Fugitive Task Force traveled to Florida, arrested Herring, and brought him to Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday. He was later arraigned on attempted-murder charges and remanded without bail.

Prosecutors said that, in the morning of February 16, Herring, a pedestrian, was nearly clipped by a BMW heading northbound on Clinton Street, near Delancey. Road rage ensued, and after the brief exchange, the driver walked to the nearby bodega. Herring followed with a gun, and fired four rounds, one of which hit a 75-year-old woman in the butt, while walking toward the Williamsburg Bridge.
