Lugo, who lived in an apartment building near the scene, had allowed Stykes to temporarily stay with her, cops said.

The two were arguing when Stykes allegedly opened fire, but the exact nature of their feud is unclear, police said.

Styles was taken into custody shortly after the shooting and charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon, cops said.
