A California man is behind bars for a deadly shooting at a Brooklyn gas station last year, police said Saturday.

Dashawn Garland, 28, was busted by the NYPD’s Violent Felony Squad at his home in Inglewood, Calif. after he was identified as the triggerman who killed 33-year-old Michael Ingram outside a BP gas station on April 19, cops said.

Garland has been extradited back to New York, where he will faces charges of murder and weapons possession, authorities said.

Ingram, a resident of East Orange, NJ, was shot in the chest and the upper left arm in the parking lot of the gas station on Linden Blvd. and Pennsylvania Ave. about 8:55 a.m., police said.

Witnesses told cops a white Mercedes SUV took off from the scene. A gun, knife and black-and-yellow coat were left scattered nearby.

Garland’s arraignment in Brooklyn Criminal Court was pending Saturday.
