Cops busted an ex-con this week, three months after he allegedly shot and killed another man in Staten Island, according to police. 

Tyler Carmon, 25, was picked up at a correctional facility in North Carolina and transported back to New York on Thursday to face a murder charge in connection to the September 15 slaying of Cedric Black on Jersey Street in the New Brighton neighborhood, cops said. 

Black was blasted in the torso and rushed to Richmond University Medical Center, where he succumbed to his injuries. 

Carmon was also charged with criminal possession of a firearm.

The motive for the fatal shooting remained unknown Friday, and it was unclear why Carmon was being held in North Carolina.

Carmon, of Staten Island’s Castleton Corners neighborhood, has eight prior arrests, according to police. 

He served time in state prison on attempted weapons possession and attempted aggravated criminal contempt charges — from December 2015 through April 2019, when he was released on parole, Corrections records show.

His parole expired this past April.
