An East Northport man was arrested Tuesday and faces a murder charge for the August fatal shooting of a Huntington Station resident in the hamlet, Suffolk police said.

Joshua Taylor, 19, of Elwood Road, is accused in the Aug. 22 shooting death of Nicholas Ehrmann, 38, police said.

Taylor will be held overnight in the Second Precinct and faces arraignment on a second-degree murder charge Wednesday in Central Islip’s First District Court, police said.

Last month, officers responding to a 911 call found Ehrmann about 6:20 a.m. on Depot Road in Huntington Station with a gunshot wound. Ehrmann was later pronounced dead at Huntington Hospital, police said.

The shooting occurred near a convenience store and the intersection of East 17th Street.

Police have not released information on a possible motive nor if Taylor and Ehrmann knew each other.
