Center Moriches Man Charged With Fatal Shooting

A Center Moriches man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly shooting a 47-year-old man to death over the weekend, Suffolk County police said.

David Lemp was charged with first-degree manslaughter.

Homicide Squad detectives alleged the 38-year-old suspect shot Nathanial Lathan at Lemp’s Bowditch Lane home early Sunday morning.

Detectives had responded to a 911 call reporting a man with a gunshot wound to his leg in the parking lot of 7-Eleven on Main Street at 2:40 a.m.

The victim, who drove his vehicle to the convenience store, was taken to Brookhaven Memorial Hospital, where he died of his injuries.

Lemp will be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Central Islip.
