Cops arrested a 19-year-old who allegedly shot and killed Williamsburg man inside his Wythe Avenue apartment three months ago.

Police locked up a Staten Island man at 12:15 am on Friday and accused him of murdering David Boutron, 41, on Feb. 16.

A witness told police he saw the suspect with Boutron in his apartment at 3:20 pm, then heard several shots fired inside the building near S. Sixth Street. The witness then saw the suspect running from the room and noticed Boutron lying on the floor bleeding from his mouth, cops said.

Paramedics pronounced Boutron dead and a medical examiner confirmed that the victim died from the bullet wounds.

Prosecutors charged the suspect with murder in the second degree and criminal possession of a weapon.

A Brooklyn District Attorney spokesman said prosecutors expect to arraign the suspect this weekend.
