Murdered at pool hall

Cops have arrested a 49-year-old man in connection with a murder at an underground pool hall on Broadway.

The January 2 slaying was the first murder to take place in Williamsburg in 2010, officials said.

According to published reports, suspected murderer Mauro Lopez was drinking and shooting stick at a pool hall in the back of a bodega near Keap Street at 3:30 p.m. when he got involved in an argument with the victim, a relative.

Lopez then stormed out of the store claiming that he was going to get a gun, police alleged.

He returned a few minutes later, allegedly training a pistol on his victim, who was shot in the chest.

Officials said that two patrol officers apprehended Lopez shortly after the shooting. Detectives had connected him to the slaying by the next day, charging him with murder.
