A suspect has been nabbed in connection to the broad-daylight murder of a 20-year-old man during a Bronx motorcycle sale, cops said.

Manuel Reyes, 23, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter, assault and second-degree weapon possession in connection to the Wednesday slaying of Jefferson Hernandez, 20, police said late Sunday. 

Hernandez, of Spring Valley, Rockland County, drove down to East 144th and Exterior streets in Mott Haven with three other men to buy a Kawasaki motorcycle they found on Facebook Marketplace, authorities said.
