A Bay Shore teenager is in custody for an alleged drive-by shooting that seriously injured a West Babylon man this week, Suffolk County police said.

Shameek Hutchinson, 17, was arrested Thursday and charged with assault and criminal use of a firearm.

Hutchinson’s arrest stems from a late-afternoon shooting in West Babylon on Monday. Police said the 21-year-old victim, Christian Warren, was shot in the face from a vehicle outside his house around 4:30 p.m.

Warren was initially transported to Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip in serious but stable condition.

Hutchinson will be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Central Islip.

Police are continuing the investigation.
