Arrest In 2008 Brockton Baby Shower Murder
BROCKTON (CBS) – A young man has been arrested for the murder of a teenager at a baby shower in Brockton more than two years ago.
16-year-old Chantel Matiyosus was shot in the head and abdomen outside a home on Addison Street on the night of April 25, 2008.
On Wednesday afternoon, police arrested 20-year-old Darryene Ware of Brockton and charged him with murder.
Investigators say Ware “had a heated and ongoing dispute with at least one attendee of the baby shower.”
WBZ-TV’s Kate Merrill reports.
Police said he and “one or more coconspirators” from a gang known as “D Block” opened fire “with multiple semiautomatic handguns on a group of party-goers” who were standing outside the home where the baby shower was held.
Matiyosus and two others were shot.
Ware will be arraigned Thursday in Brockton District Court.
