A Queens man was arraigned Saturday on charges of second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon in connection with the shooting death of a man on Staten Island.

Armand Skrine, 34, is being held without bail.

On Thursday, police responded to a call of shots fired on Steuben Street in Park Hill.

There they found David Williams, 30, on the seventh floor of his building with multiple gunshot wounds.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say they spotted Skrine coming out of the woods, stopped him for questioning, and found he had counterfeit money on him.

A search of the woods turned up a duffel bag with a mask, firearm, and $1,800 in counterfeit money.

They say Skrine and Williams were college roommates and that there may have been a fight over money.

Officials say Skrine is also wanted for assault in Queens.
