Long Island man arrested in fatal home invasion

Posted: Updated:

EASTPORT, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a Long Island man on murder charges in connection to the death of a man last month in a home invasion.

Suffolk County police say a 22-year-old East Moriches man was arrested on Saturday night.

Police say that on Dec. 8 at about 3 a.m., he and another masked suspect entered the home in Eastport and announced a robbery.

Forty-five-year-old Francisco Pirir died of his wounds. The other resident was shot in the hand.

The suspect was awaiting arraignment Sunday. Authorities did not know if he has a lawyer.

Police are still looking for the second suspect.
