Detectives have arrested a second shooter in the stray-bullet death of a Brooklyn nurse last year, police sources said.
Humberto Benjamin had eluded capture since 35-year-old Carol Simon was shot down near her Eastern Parkway home on Dec. 15, as her young son waited in the family's SUV to go for a swimming lesson.
But police were waiting for Benjamin last Wednesday after snitches told investigators he would likely show up at a funeral for a gang member in Brooklyn.
"My bullets didn't kill the lady!" Benjamin cried as detectives picked him up at the services, a police source said.
He was charged with murder. A grand jury is set to hear the case in Brooklyn Criminal Court today.
