A Brooklyn man who allegedly shot and killing a 30-year-old man outside of a West Babylon strip club four years ago has been arrested, Suffolk County police said.

Marcus Lewis was charged Thursday with second-degree murder.

Homicide Squad detectives alleged that the 32-year-old suspect fatally shot Michael Anderson of West Babylon in front of Stone Hedge Pub on Sunrise Highway at 2:20 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, 2010.

The victim was purchasing cigars at a nearby gas station when someone in a vehicle that was parked on the Sunrise Highway Service Road in front of the club—which has since closed—called Anderson by his nickname, Anderson’s friend told investigators, police have said.

The victim walked behind the vehicle as the friend entered the club, according to detectives. The friend heard a gunshot and went out to find Anderson lying on the service road with a gunshot wound to his head, police have said.

Anderson was later pronounced dead at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center in West Islip.

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