Police at the time of the deadly shooting said that he was simply passing through the neighborhood on his scooter when someone fired a gun several times, striking him.
Yan delivered for The Great Wall, a nearby Chinese restaurant.
His widow addressed the media in Chinese Thursday.
"We are all relieved that someone has been arrested," said Eva Zhao. "We are grateful to the NYPD and have full confidence that the Queens District Attorney will bring justice to Zhiwen Yan, a loving and kind husband, father, son, friend and community member."
"He was the heart of Forest Hills to so many," said Matthew Murray, a local resident.
The shooter got into a gray or tan sedan and sped away from the scene.
