A 48-year-old West Babylon man was arrested Friday in connection with a shooting that seriously injured a Wyandanch man last month, Suffolk County police said.

Rodney Davidson was charged with second-degree assault for allegedly shooting Keith Garrison in Wyandanch on April 15.

Detectives said the two men got into an altercation on North 15th Street around 4 p.m. when Davidson allegedly shot the victim in the neck and back.

Garrison was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip in serious condition. Police were unable to give an update on Garrison’s condition. A spokesperson for the hospital wasn’t available.

Davidson is scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on Saturday.
