BOSTON (CBS) – Police have arrested a suspect in an October murder in the Brighton neighborhood of Boston.

Thirty-year-old Desmond Joseph was shot and killed on Oct. 22 with the suspect fleeing the area. Boston Police later identified Gammada Musa, 25, of Allston as the suspect in Joseph’s death.

Police said Musa was located thanks to several anonymous tips.

Musa is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Brighton District Court.

“In addition to thanking my investigators, I want to especially acknowledge and thank the community members who supplied the anonymous tips that ultimately lead to the capture of Gammada Musa,” said Boston Police Commissioner William Evans. “Thanks to the community’s help and belief in the idea that our city can be a safer place when we all work together, a dangerous felon is off the streets and in police custody.”
