In a Tuesday press release, Suffolk County Police said the shooting stemmed from an 'internal dispute' between Green and rival Bloods street gang member 20-year-old Tyriek Corbin.
Corbin was shot in the torso and injured.
'Detectives are investigating whether the incident is related to two shootings that took place in Coram [Monday] afternoon,' the press release said.
Green was arraigned Tuesday on an unrelated November 2018 charge of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument related to a $1,967 forged check.
He is being held on $800,000 cash bail or $1.6 million bond.
Outside the court in Central Islip, Green's attorney Anthony Scheller said: 'He is presumed innocent at this point, but there is a lot of investigation yet to do.
'We have to review the surveillance and talk to the witnesses.'
The surveillance video was posted on Facebook early Thursday.
