QUINCY (CBS) – Several people were arrested Monday after a courtroom brawl broke out during the arraignment of four people involved in the shooting death of a Randolph man.
Twenty-one-year-old Kyle McManus was shot and killed outside his parents’ home on Wales Avenue late Saturday night and police later arrested 19-year-old Allison Deshowitz, 18-year-old Devonte Thames, 17-year-old Nathan Lugo, and 18-year-old Brian Moulton in connection with the shooting.
In Quincy District Court on Monday, prosecutors called the death a drug deal gone wrong.
“These four individuals had intended to rob (McManus) of the marijuana,” said the prosecutor.
Later on, someone in the courtroom stood up and said “I love you.” Moments later, friends and family of the suspects and the victim starting shouting at and shoving each other. WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Kim Tunnicliffe described the scene as an “all-out brawl.”
At one point, police ordered everyone out of the court.
