(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly shooting two brothers because they double parked their car while he was trying to pass them, police in New York said.

The New York Police Department said that they have arrested 52-year-old George Cupi of Shelton, Connecticut, after being accused of shooting the brothers in Queens.

Cupi was charged with second-degree murder, second-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

If convicted, Cupi faces up to 50 years in prison.

According to the police investigation, Cupi was behind the wheel of a white van and attempted to pass a double-parked vehicle on Austin Street near 125 Street in the Kew Gardens section of Queens.

Cupi argued with the occupants of the other car. Cupi then left the scene, but returned moments later and shot both men. The 25-year-old victim was killed and his brother, 31, who was shot once in the head, recovered.

The surviving brother still has the bullet lodged in his skull.
