Ahmed, arrested in Baltimore last week, was brought back to Nassau County Friday on an extradition warrant, police said.

Reese was at a gathering near the Freeport Yacht Club, 533 Guy Lombardo Ave., early in the morning when there was a confrontation, police said, and Freeport police responded to a call of shots fired. Reese was found outside the club, and was taken to a hospital where he was declared dead about an hour after the shooting, police said.

No information was released by detectives concerning a possible motive for the shooting, or what led them to Ahmed.
