FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (CBS) — A man and woman were arrested Saturday in connection with a Framingham double shooting that gravely injured one man and seriously injured another.
Both suspects allegedly lied to investigators, falsely implicating another person for having a role in the shooting, Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Framingham Police Chief Steven Carl said in a prepared statement.
Christian Castro-Lainez, 18, of Worcester, was arrested and charged with assault with intent to murder (two counts), unlawful possession of a loaded firearm and misleading investigators. His girlfriend, Margaret Desrosiers, 17, of Framingham, was charged with being an accessory to armed assault with intent to murder, unlawful possession of a firearm and misleading investigators.
Both suspects are scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Framingham District Court.
At about 12:45 a.m. Saturday morning, Framingham Police were dispatched to Hollis Street for a report of a shooting.
When officers arrived, they learned that two men had been taken to nearby hospitals with gunshot wounds. A 20-year-old Framingham man suffered a gunshot wound to the head and was taken to Tufts Medical Center, where he was on life support Saturday night. The second victim, a 21-year-old Framingham man, suffered a gunshot wound to the chest and was taken to University of Massachusetts Medical Center, where he was in stable condition Saturday night.
Framingham Police and Massachusetts State Police assigned to the Middlesex District Attorney’s Office are investigating the case.
The investigation has revealed that the two shooting victims went to the residence on Hollis Street to see Desrosiers. Following an interaction with Desrosiers, it is alleged that Castro-Lainez arrived at the property and a fight broke out among Castro-Lainez and the two shooting victims. Castro-Laniez allegedly shot the men after they got into a car to drive away, according to Ryan and Carl.
