A suspect was held on $ million bail after Suffolk County police arrested him for the death of a 39-year-old Bay Shore man who was killed in Huntington his week, authorities said.

Samuel White, 32, of Brentwood, was charged with first-degree manslaughter in the death of Edwin Rivera.

A 911 caller had reported that a man was unconscious and covered in blood on Clinton Avenue and when officers arrived, they found the victim lying on the ground next to his Mercedes at 3:17 a.m. Wednesday.

The victim was taken to Huntington Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s office performed an autopsy and ruled his death to be criminal.

Homicide Squad detectives arrested White on Thursday. Suffolk County Judge Jennifer Henry set his bail at $1 million bond or $500,000 cash. He is due back in court Tuesday.
