He is one of two men facing charges in connection with the March 20 shooting death of 17-year-old Tyler Zanco.

An arrest warrant affidavit says Zanco was shot when he and two friends attempted to rob Poulin, believing he cheated Zanco’s cousin in a marijuana deal. The alleged shooter, 22-year-old Domingo Mendes of Belmont, remains at large.

Poulin was tracked down in Windham, Maine several days after the shooting.
