A local family long known by area law enforcement had another encounter early Wednesday morning when a man was shot outside his Johnson City apartment and later died.

A little more than 12 hours later, Johnson City police filed an arrest warrant for Marcus Petenathan Gergish, 34, 1206 Flora Ave., on a first-degree felony murder charge. Around 8 p.m, Chief Mark Sirois confirmed Gergish was in custody.

Gergish is charged with shooting to death Timothy Peregoy Sr., 47, 1735 Nathaniel Drive, No. 55. Peregoy was pronounced dead at Johnson City Medical Center after officers found him on a sidewalk with a gunshot wound.
