PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- A man is facing felony charges related to the shooting death of a Port St. Lucie man last year.

Port St. Lucie Police with assistance of the United States Marshals Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Hunter Thomas Boesch, 20, Wednesday.

Boesch is charged with First Degree Felony Murder, Attempted Robbery with a Firearm, and Conspiracy to Commit Robery with a Firearm.

The charges are related to the fatal shooting of 29-year-old Beau Hartman on February 16, 2016.

Hartman arrived at his residence after a night at work and heard a knock at his front door. Police say one of the 5 occupants of the house looked out of the front window and saw a man with his face concealed at the front of the house.

Hartman and another occupant went outside to investigate. As Hartman headed around the driveway, he was met by a suspect who shot him in the abdomen.

Hartman was flown to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Hunter Boesch was arrested at the St. Lucie County Jail where he is currently staying on unrelated charges.

Story updated to clarify the shooting happened in February 2016.
