Two 18-year-old suspects have been charged with fatally shooting a Bronx man sitting in his Mercedes, police said.

Antione Scriber and Justin Polanco were charged with murder, manslaughter and gun possession Wednesday for the May 25 death of Ariel Santos.

Police said a witness saw several men get out of a Chevy Blazer and run up to Santos, 32, as he sat in his black Mercedes at Arthur Ave. and E. 178th St. in East Tremont.

Scriber opened fire at Santos who stumbled out of the car before collapsing. The victim was rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital but he could not be saved.

Scriber, of the Bronx, has one sealed arrest and an assault arrest in March, while Polanco, of Manhattan, has two sealed arrests for robbery and one for petty larceny, police said.

Both teens were awaiting arraignment Thursday.
