BROCKTON (AP) — Authorities say a second man has died after a shooting that led to a fiery car crash in Brockton.

Plymouth District Attorney Timothy Cruz said 21-year-old Adilson Tavares died Tuesday of his injuries. Cruz said 24-year-old Valter Monteiro of Brockton died shortly after both men were shot late Sunday night.

Cruz said police found the men after receiving several calls about a car crashed at Revere and West Elm Streets at about 11:39 p.m.

Police said the vehicle had crashed into a car parked in a driveway and sparked a fire.
