Dimitry Kamenev, 76, of Brighton Beach has been charged with Murder and Criminal Use of a Firearm. It is not yet known if the victim and suspect are related.

Alla Kamenev, of 601 B Surf Ave., died on Coney Island after being shot three times in the torso.  Police say that the suspect was recorded on a videotape riding a girl’s bicycle with a red basket.

She appears to have been little known by her neighbors, who describe her as a quiet woman who kept to herself. Some who lived in her building said they did not know her, nor had her heard about her murder.
