Cops busted a suspect wanted in the brutal murder of a Brooklyn man.

Lee Williams, 27, was arrested on May 29 in connection with the killing of 66-year-old Robert Donofrio, who was shot in the chest during a robbery at his Bath Beach home in February 2017, according to police.

Emergency medical personnel took Donofrio to Maimonides Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead, according to authorities.

Lee, who is accused of second-degree murder and other charges, is the fourth suspect cuffed in connection with the fatal shooting.

Police arrested Florida-native Tanaja Grant earlier this week, 10 months after cuffing Derek Simpkins and Abasie Brabam in July 2018.

All four suspects are charged with second-degree murder, burglary, and criminal possesion of a weapon, cops said.
